AS part of its reopening plans Ilkley Manor House is holding a Makers Fair in the courtyard at the Manor House on Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27 June from 10.30am to 5pm.

Fourteen contemporary artists and makers will be selling work from textiles to jewellery and from wooden furniture to ceramics.

Sarah Thomas, Chair of Ilkley Manor House Trust said: “Pop along anytime on Saturday or Sunday. Entrance is free.

“We will be operating whatever Covid restrictions are in place at that time so keep watching the website for details.”

Ilkley Manor House is a Grade 1 Listed Medieval house sitting in the heart of Ilkley town centre and is a centre for arts, heritage and events – a hub for the local community as well as attracting visitors to the town.

Though the house has been closed for much of the past year, it now has plans to re-open at the weekends from Saturday, July 3.

In the run up to this date, Ilkley Manor House will continue to hold events in the courtyard, a peaceful outdoor space, easily accessible to the public.
