A Whalley artisan market will bring both nostalgic rave beats and laid-back rhythms with a special event this August Bank Holiday.

Run by Dan and Laura Johnson, Crafty Vintage celebrates Lancashire’s past while crafting its future, and is hosting a market in Whalley on Sunday, August 27.

Laura, the co-founder of Crafty Vintage, said: "The beauty of Crafty Vintage lies in its ability to evoke memories while simultaneously crafting new ones.

"This Bank Holiday will be a testament to that spirit. Whalley isn't just hosting an event; it's offering an experience."

With "a passion for blending the rich history of the region with forward-thinking innovation", Crafty Vintage aims to "craft experiences that bridge the gap between the past and the present".

The market will take place in the courtyard at the Swan Hotel in King Street between 11am and 4pm, with art, crafts, fresh produce and food and drink on offer, plus live music to keep shoppers entertained.

'Salvage House' will be headlining the musical front, and DJ Gilly, known for being part of the acid house movement across Lancashire's warehouses, is also set to return.

Laura added: "Each maker, creator, and entrepreneur embodies a piece of the North West's spirit.

"From handcrafted jewellery to mesmerising art, the market is a canvas of our region's passion and creativity.

"It's not just about commerce. It's about community, fostering ties, and promoting conscious consumerism. Crafty Vintage is a celebration of these ideals.

"Whalley's Bank Holiday isn't just a day; it's a reflection of Lancashire's evolving spirit. At Crafty Vintage, we're honoured to be a part of this journey."

Gates will open at 11am on the day and entry is free.

Collaborators, creatives, and exhibitors keen on joining can visit the Crafty Vintage website.

Its next monthly Darwen Artisan Market will be on Saturday, September 9.
