The Derby Mini Maker Faire - Saturday 22nd October 2016
This year we planned to spend the whole day at the Derby Mini Maker Faire – and that’s exactly what we did. The crazy thing is that we still didn’t manage to do everything because there’s just so much to see and do!
It’s held at the Silk Mill and entry was £2 for adults if you pre booked online and under 16’s were free. Quite a bargain for saying we spent all day there!
Out on Cathedral Green (before you even stepped foot into the faire) was ‘Bubble Man’ who had a range of contraptions to blow the biggest, best bubbles you’ve ever seen! It was great to watch and even better that you can get have a go yourself.
Inside the Maker Faire was a whole host of exhibitors that are keen to tell you about their creation or let you have a go, look, taste, or try!
Here’s just some of the activities that we took part in:
We really hope that you find this website useful in helping you plan a family day out. Whilst we try our absolute hardest to ensure all of the information is correct and up to date, we highly recommend you call ahead of any planned visit to check opening times and prices etc. We don't want any disappointed families! (Oh and check the weatherbefore you set off!)
