Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of creators, crafters, coders and DIY-ers, where everyone is encouraged to get stuck in! It brings together hundreds of hackers, crafters, inventors and coders from across the globe – people who love to make stuff and who want to share their passion with the public. It’s really great fun for adults and kids alike, with all sorts of different things to try your hand at from traditional crafts – including leather making and weaving – to hi-tech hacks, including robotics and coding. There’ll be plenty of live entertainment on the day too. Tickets are available to buy now at
