We are very happy to announce that there will be a dedicated social space at this year’s Yarningham.

We will be using the ‘Cinema Room’ as a dedicated social space where you can meet up with friends, have a drink and some cake or just sit admiring your purchases!

The ‘Cinema Room’ is located next to the Yarningham Marketplace in the main hall.  It is fully air conditioned and will have plenty of seating and tables.

The ‘Cinema Room’ is also conveniently situated adjacent to the onsite cafe run by Change Kitchen who will be serving hot and cold drinks and a range of vegetarian and vegan meals and snacks.

The social space will also feature Lorna Bakes who will be back with a delicious selection of cakes and baked goods.

Also in the social space the local branch of WSD (Weavers, Spinners and Dyers) Guild will be demonstrating their skills and on hand for a chat.

And to top it all off in the new social space, creator of Knitmastery and Stitchmastery Cathy Scott will be demonstrating the new app and running a giveaway.  More details of Stitchmastery and Knitmastery in a few weeks.
