The first Lost Trades fair was a roaring success in 2014 with about 30 rare trades on display and 7000 people turned out to take a look. The place was packed and 2015 will have about 80 rare trades on display. The racecourse venue will be able to cope with the crowd and all visitors will be able to see the craftsmen/women practicing their unique trades. This is on 7 - 8th March 2015
