Maidenhead’s creativity will be put to the test for the third time as the Made In Maidenhead Town Centre Show returns.
Started in 2014, the show invites a variety of artists to come and show off their talents in a creativity-filled day.
Taking place on Saturday, September 17, there will be a multitude of activities to take part in, including baking, knitting, sewing, photography and general crafts, all of which will be on display in the Nicholsons Centre.
There will also be a dog competition, a children’s fancy dress competition, performances by Maidenhead music and dance groups and stalls selling handcrafted gifts in the High Street.
Deborah Jones, co-director of Craft Coop, a co-organiser of the show, said: “Being involved in Craft Coop, I see every day how creative people in our area are, and I hope that everyone will take the opportunity to show off their skills at the Town Centre Show.”
There is also the opportunity to take place in The Group Challenge which is new for this year’s show.
Rally together friends or colleagues to pull together a team of at least three members to create a garden ornament from products which would normally be thrown away.
The entries will be displayed in the Nicholsons Centre for one week, with the public invited to vote for their favourite and the winner will be announced at the Town Centre Show.
Entries are £1 and all proceeds go towards installing the garden ornaments at the centre.
All entries must be brought to the Craft Coop in the Nicholsons Centre by 5pm on Friday, September 9.
