The 2006 Festival of Leather will take place on Saturday and Sunday July 1-2 at Capel Manor, near Enfield, UK. The first ever Festival of Leather held in 2005 was a truly successful celebration of leather, bringing together the craftsmanship and historical and commercial aspects of the British leather industry within Capel Manor’s thirty-acre gardens. The event was well supported by the industry itself and by thousands of visitors, who enjoyed the living history attractions, leather artefacts, design and saddlery competitions, shopping and fashion shows. Organisers promise the 2006 Festival of Leather will be even bigger and better.
