At Hyde Hall, visitors will be able to visit the craft fair while enjoying the stunning surroundings. 

The Craft In Focus website states: "This event offers a perfect opportunity to see outstanding work and craftsmanship from talented, professional British makers whilst also enjoying a garden of inspirational beauty with sweeping panoramas."

A spokesperson added: "All exhibitors have designed and made the work that they display and have been selected for their individuality and innovation in contemporary design, as well as outstanding technical ability.

"The UK has a wealth of individual and talented designer makers and artists who produce wonderful original items that simply cannot be found amongst the mass-produced and imported goods on the high street."
