Book free tickets

In advance of refugee week, and in partnership with Migration Yorkshire, we are pleased to welcome six talented craftspeople to Calverley Old Hall to demonstrate a range of traditional craft skills. This event is made possible thanks to National Lottery players, through The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The event will feature crafts and crafters from Japan, Hong Kong, and even the UNESCO listed Intangible Heritage craft of Ukrainian Petrykivka painting.

The six demonstrators will each share their own craft, with the opportunity to have a chat, learn more about the crafts and get hands on to have a go yourself.

The event is free of charge, and will also be a chance to learn a bit about Calverley Old Hall, and the traditional craft skills we have been using on site through the current restoration project by the Landmark Trust.

Drop in anytime after 11am - last admission will be 1.45pm, and the event will close at 2pm. Whilst booking is not essential we would ask that you register for the event via Eventbrite so that we can provide you with updates regarding the event and manage capacities. Priority will be given to those who have pre-registered.

Donating to The Landmark Trust

As a charity, the Landmark Trust relies on donations to support our work. We couldn’t have rescued over 200 Landmarks without the support of people like you.

Your support saves historic buildings in danger of being lost forever and makes them available for all to experience and enjoy.

Your donation could help train the craftspeople needed to restore buildings like this, or it could offer opportunities to young people to experience history first-hand, through our open days and free stays for study groups.

We would be delighted if you felt able to add a gift to your booking today. We can’t wait to stay in touch and show you the difference your support has made. Thank you!
