A celebrity gardener will be in Hatfield on Friday at an event celebrating the best of British craft making.

“There will be plenty of new features and this year we are delighted to welcome the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, who further British craftsmanship through grants and education and The Prince’s Trust, which has inspired and changed the lives of budding craftsmen and women across the country.”

It runs from 10am to 5pm each day between tomorrow and Sunday.

Tickets on the door cost £9.50 for adults, £9 for seniors, £4.50 for children, or family tickets cost £23.
