Love Topsham is hosting its first Artisan Business Fair in Topsham at the end of March.

The first Love Topsham Artisan Business Fair takes place in Matthews Hall on Sunday, March 26 from 10am until 3pm.

There will be well over 20 stalls, almost all showcasing businesses based in and around Topsham but lacking their own permanent shop windows.

Artisan businesses ranging from jewellery makers to a carbon neutral carpenter will be in the spotlight.

Director of Love Topsham, Graham Norwood said: “We’ve got a host of entrepreneurs and creatives with extraordinary businesses, often working under the radar in offices, homes, lofts and old warehouses. This is their time to shine."

Exhibitors will include caterers, a chocolate party organiser, a charcuterie producer, artists, fitness experts, jewellery makers, writing services, an eco-packaging maker and even Topsham’s Repair Cafe and Topsham Museum shop teams.

Graham added:“It’s obviously tough for all businesses right now and we’re delighted that so many have come forward to exhibit. There will be some demonstrations and people will be able to buy unique gifts.”

The event is the first of the year organised by Love Topsham, a non-profit making group of local volunteers who support the town’s traders, community groups and res-idents.

The group runs a series of activities to promote the town, ranging from the provision of 90 hanging baskets outside businesses, through street entertainment in the sum-mer, right up to a series of Christmas festivities and the provision of lights and trees throughout the town.
