In-Person Taster Activities
Halton MakeFest 2022 was an incredible event which happened just after the nation came out of the Global Covid-19 pandemic, so it was the first large scale in-person event we ran after a series of lockdowns, and what a celebration it was!
Halton MakeFest 2023 is going to be bigger and better than before, with more makers and more activities………..
How will the MakeFest 2023 main event run?
Halton MakeFest 2023 will be an action-packed, hands-on, in-person event held on Saturday 25th March at Widnes Library, open to the general public to attend.
Showcasing a wide variety of local makers, demonstrating their fantastic skills, allowing the public to soak in all their creativity.
Halton MakeFest is a community festival and will be FREE for people to attend. We would like to run as many free activities as possible (we understand there might be certain makers or activities that require a surcharge to cover material costs).
We are looking for a variety of makers who would like to demonstrate their talents in-person at the event.
Activities can range from drop-in activities, scheduled workshops, creative performances, talks or demonstrations. If you’re not sure, get in touch!
