1st - 23rd December 2017

Our Makers Presents exhibition transforms SIDESHOW into a sparkling celebration of festive creativity. In homage to the enormously popular giant marble-run installation, this exhibition continues the theme of games and play on a big scale.  Visitors can test their strength (and find out what workshop skills they’re ready for) on our Blackhorse Workshop Highstriker. Then, give our Nifty Gifter a spin to select just the right present for a loved one. There is a specially selected range of hand-made products for sale, all designed and made by the skilled designers and makers of Blackhorse Workshop. If you’re still undecided, give our lucky dip a try!


The annual Blackhorse Workshop Christmas Market pops up this year at SIDESHOW on 7 December, 5 pm til late. Come along to discover unique gifts and products by local designers and makers. As ever, there will be an impressive range of materials and craftsmanship on show, from leatherwork to ceramics, wooden toys to terracotta homewares. You can also pick up your Christmas tree at the market and keep your strength up with some tasty street food and mulled cider.
