The festival runs from 28th – 30th July – tickets and more information can be found at – Be sure to purchase your tickets in time for a glass of fizz and some great traditional music inside The Bothy Tent!

Speyfest Craft and Food Fair

Just a reminder that bookings are being taken for our Saturday Craft and Food Fair.

The Speyfest Committee would like to invite crafters to present their craft work at our Craft Fair on Saturday 29th July 2017. Our aim is to provide a venue for crafters to show and sell their work. Therefore we request that at least 80% of the work is handmade.
The 2016 Craft & Food Fair was very successful, receiving positive feedback from fellow crafters and the general public about the quality and range of crafts that were exhibited.
We would like to invite crafters from last year and previous years and ask if you can let others know.
Again, outside spaces may be available upon request, please contact me if this is of interest to you.
Booking Form and application form can be found under Get Involved
For more information or to make a booking, please contact Mora Anderson by e-mail or
