Show Update 2021

As Covid-19 restrictions continue to challenge a variety of businesses and industries worldwide, difficult decisions are forced to be made.

Sadly but understandably, the shows we were planning to exhibit at this year have been cancelled or postponed until 2022. Please find statements from the organisers below.

We were very much looking forward to getting back out there to see some friendly faces and meet new ones too, but unfortunately, this isn't the year to do it.

Remember, you are still very welcome to visit us in-store if you fancy a trip to Harworth, Nottinghamshire - we're not going anywhere!

If you have any queries regarding these shows, please contact the organisers directly. Links can be found below.


Makers Central

Scheduled 7th - 8th August 2021

Statement Released
Following the latest government announcement that restrictions were not going to be lifted as planned on 21st June 2021, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the show for what we hope is one last time.

We would love to be able to wait a few more weeks to see how the situation develops, but if we wait any longer, we run the risk of not leaving enough time for people to cancel or change their travel and accommodation plans.

With all of this in mind, we are looking to move the show to the 30th April – 1st May 2022 and your original tickets will remain valid, so you don’t need to do anything.

AWGB Seminar

Scheduled 24th - 26th September 2021

Statement Released
The AWGB trustees have considered the circumstances and due to the uncertainty with the Covid situation and the lack of support in terms of numbers of bookings, the decision was reluctantly taken to cancel the seminar scheduled for September 2021.

All those who have booked tickets will be refunded in full. You don’t need to contact us at this stage, we will contact you with refund information once processed.

A booking has been made for the next Seminar which will take place from the 7th - 9th October 2022 at Yarnfield Park, Staffordshire. Details of presenters, prices etc. will be published once finalised and tickets will be available from the end of October 2021.

North of England Woodworking Show

Scheduled 12th - 14th November 2021

Statement Released
It is with regret that we must announce cancellation of the 2021 North of England Woodworking & Power Tool Show. Originally scheduled for 12th -14th November, taking into consideration government guidelines on organised events, uncertainty still exists and our priority is to keep visitors and exhibitors safe.

Due to the nature of the event, maintaining social distancing would be difficult and potentially compromise the number of trade stands and visitors we'd be able to admit.

The confirmed dates for 2022 are 11th - 13th November. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, next year. Further details of exhibitors, trade stands and demonstrators will be announced in due course.
