Lancashire Tourism 2017 Award winners Crafty Vintage and Shores Hey Farm are combining their areas of expertise to create an Easter Weekend Bonanza never seen before in our county.
Shores Hey Farm, based in Briercliffe, Burnley is the location where the event will take place, on Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd of April between 11am and 4pm.
Shores Hey Farm is the home of the Charity HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association), although the organisation has been established there since the early 80’s, in recent years the site has seen a massive transformation to become Lancashire Tourism Small Visitor Attraction Winner in 2017.
Winners of the Tourism Superstar Awards, Laura Johnson/ Crafty Vintage have now become a house hold name in Lancashire. The dedication, artistry and show stopping events from Laura and the team bring family fun and magic to the masses.
Having met at the Awards Ceremony, Graham Vernon of HAPPA and Laura Johnson of Crafty Vintage decided to team up to bring to Shores Hey Farm a Crafty Vintage event, in the rolling hills of the Thursden Valley.
Sarah Arthur, Chief Officer at HAPPA is looking forward to the event, “This exciting collaboration will help to put Shores Hey Farm on the map for tourists and visitors to Lancashire including the local community who have maybe never even heard of us. The wealth of experience from Laura and her team will only enhance the visitor experience to the farm and I know it will be a great future asset to Lancashire.”
Attractions on the day include live music, craft ales, farmers’ and crafts market, children’s entertainers, cocktail bar, collectors and much more. Shores Hey Farm’s very own mascot Tommy Trotter will be making an appearance for the younger children and you can participate in his Easter Trail.
Shores Hey Farm’s Scullery café will be open as normal, admission and parking is free, however tickets are available to assist with visitor numbers and are available at
