Creative Makers Fair
We can't quite believe it but it's almost 17 months since we last held a public event here at Victoria Baths!
So do join us for this our opening event. Enjoy the opportunity to browse a fantastic variety of stalls selling unique and handmade artwork, jewellery, ceramics, crafts and textiles, all in the beautiful setting of our vast pool halls, colourful stained glass, and iconic tiles.
We'll have an expanded Victoria Baths Gift Shop open and our Exhibition Room featuring the history of Victoria Baths from its opening in 1906, through to its closure and restoration. You'll be the first visitors to see two stunning, newly-restored stained glass windows in the Females Pool, which were completed in March 2020.
We've reduced our ticket price to £3 for this re-opening event, to reflect that it's a smaller scale event than normal, due to the current Government Covid-19 guidelines.
To ensure it's a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, all the Covid safety measures that you'd expect will be in place:
Timed entry tickets and plenty of space to enable social distancing
One-way system around the building
Clearly spaced queuing points where necessary
Mandatory face masks inside the building, unless you're exempt
Plenty of hand sanitiser stations
Cashless payments encouraged
Event has been fully risk assessed and approved by Manchester City Council's Market's licensing team.
Entry is strictly by booked ticket only:
Adults - £3
Under 16s and Friends of Victoria Baths - Free
Only attend as a group of up to 6, with people in your own household or support bubble
Last entry is at 4pm and the building will close at 5pm
Please note that the building isn't heated so it's vital you wrap up warm in cold weather, as it's often as cold inside as outside. We're very sorry but due to current Covid restrictions we won't be able to open our Tea Room for these events.
Victoria Baths Trust is a registered charity and all the money raised from our events helps to keep this beautiful building open for everyone to enjoy.
