Places to meet, eat and drink

We are delighted that Ellen of Mrs Lam Yarns agreed to create 2 custom colourways for Yarningham 2019.

We asked Ellen to use Birmingham as her inspiration, otherwise she had free reign to create what she wished.

We can’t wait to show you the results of Ellen’s dyeing efforts, but for now we’re just going to tease you with this image of Ikon Gallery surrounded by spring blossom.

The Mrs Lam Yarns Yarningham custom colourways will be available exclusively from Yarningham merchandise stall.

Boris and Donald Enamel Badges

I always wanted to be the milk monitor at primary school so I could have an enamel badge. I never did make it as milk monitor but the universe has a strange way of giving you what you need, not what you want.

So 30-odd years later I finally have the enamel badge of my dreams.  I present to you our Yarningham mascots Boris and Donald on an enamel badge.

A massive THANK YOU to the talented Ruth Green for designing the badge.

Our Boris and Donald enamel badges will be available exclusively from the Yarningham merchandise stand.  Badges are £7 each.

Advanced tickets for Yarningham Marketplace are available here for £5 (+ booking fee).

We will have a delicious selection of cakes baked by Blueberry Hill Patisserie who do quite wonderful things with eggs, butter and flour. There will be vegan options available.

And thanks to feedback and recommendations from our audience, we will also have gluten free cakes from Paisley Immy Cakes.
