There will be family ‘have-a-go’ craft and creative activities for the community to try organised by the Home-Start Hampshire volunteers in the awning, alongside stalls from local crafters and artists

We are looking for more knitters and crocheters to take part in ‘Yarn Bombing’ the Public Gardens. So far a small group of volunteers have come forward to join in the fun but we are still looking for more – please email Emily-Jane Messenger on for more details.

If you would like to apply for a pitch at any of the themed markets (free for charities/non-profit groups or £10 for commercial) please contact: Emily-Jane Messenger at Alton Town Council by emailing:

Please also support our shops, take away cafes and outdoor eateries by shopping local when you visit our town and events.
