A Ten Day Summer Craft Fair takes place at Dacre Hall at Lanercost Priory from July 23rd 2016. This outstanding quality craft fair is in its 40th year and is very popular with locals and tourists with over 40 stall holders offering quality handcrafted unique gifts and goods. This is a fundraising event for the maintenance of the 13th Century village hall which is a registered charity. Admission 60p (accompanied children free) with home baked refreshments available.

Dacre Hall is considered to be the oldest village hall in England and dates back to the 13th century in parts. It has been subject to almost a half a million pound refurbishment of the hall itself which also preserved some very old frescoes with the aid of English Heritage. It has recently had its kitchen refurbished after winning a local competition where the prize of the new kitchen was put up by Border Kitchens. These events are fundraising events and extremely important to the future of the hall as their success helps to pay for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep.
