Crafty Vintage's inception was never just about rekindling memories; it was about creating a transformative experience that bridged the rich history of Lancashire with its dynamic future. This August Bank Holiday Sunday in Whalley offers a tantalising glimpse of that vision, with a mix of nostalgic beats and contemporary vibes, setting the stage for what’s to come.

With its cobbled streets and tales as old as time, Whalley is preparing to embrace a fresh wave of excitement and energy. From the cherished rave beats of decades gone by to today’s more mellow house rhythms, visitors and locals alike will find themselves entranced by a sonic journey that traverses time.

The Salvage House will undoubtedly be the epicentre of this musical extravaganza. DJ Gilly, a name synonymous with the iconic acid house movement that once took over Lancashire's warehouses, is all set to spin his magic. His involvement is a nod to Whalley's storied past, while also heralding its bright future as a musical powerhouse.

While we're all eagerly anticipating the Bank Holiday's festivities, there’s an equally riveting development on the horizon. The Rendezvous Night Club has managed a coup by securing an event on the 23rd of September with the renowned record label, Defected. This upcoming collaboration isn't just another event; it's a testament to Whalley’s growing stature in the entertainment world. Such prestigious programming signifies the increasing confidence in the township’s offerings and highlights the top-tier nightlife experiences being curated for a discerning audience.

Now, let's delve deeper into the heartbeat of the Bank Holiday, The Artisan Market by Crafty Vintage;

Makers: Behind every handcrafted piece lies a story. Our artisans, a blend of tradition bearers and modern innovators, breathe life into these stories. Whether it's bespoke jewellery that echoes Lancashire’s moors or furniture that encapsulates urban chic, there's a narrative waiting to be discovered.

Creators: The artistic expressions on display are more than mere objects; they are the essence of the North West. From mesmerising ceramics to vibrant paintings and thought-provoking sculptures, these artworks symbolise the spirit and passion of our region.

Start-ups: Lancashire’s entrepreneurial scene is buzzing, and these fledgling businesses are proof. Their ventures, often rooted in sustainability, champion circular economy principles and pave the way for a new era of conscious commerce.

Events of this magnitude are multifaceted in their impact. They serve as recreation hubs, drive cultural enrichment, and boost economic development. Through Crafty Vintage's focus on community, sustainability, and the circular economy, we aim to redefine the contours of commerce and culture in Lancashire.

To the valued readers of The Lancashire Business View: Whalley's Bank Holiday festivities offer a tantalising prelude to the region’s future. With an array of events on the horizon, Whalley isn’t just participating in Lancashire’s evolution; it's leading the way.

About the Whalley Artisan Market: The Artisan Market is scheduled to take place on the 26th August Bank Holiday Sunday. Gates swing open at 11 am, welcoming everyone to a day of discovery and delight. Entry is entirely free, ensuring everyone can experience the magic. For collaborators, creatives, and exhibitors looking to join this vibrant gathering, you're heartily encouraged to get involved.
