Region 8 is based in the south east of the country and has Branches as far as the New Forest, Canterbury, Reading and Hillingdon. Region 8 are a very active region and our 27 Branches hold demonstrations, workshops and swap ideas, some Branches sell sugarcraft products at the meetings. Don’t be put off by our name we have members who are interested in Sugarcraft as beginners right the way through to experts.

To find out if there is a Branch near you click on the link. Why not come as a visitor and meet your local members? They are a friendly bunch and will be happy to offer you a cup of tea/coffee and biscuit during the evening. Some members don't make cakes they just come for the company and are interested in seeing other peoples skills demonstrated. See the February newsletter for some exciting events in the area.

As a member of the BSG you will also receive a quarterly newsletter in magazine format from the Guild giving news on exhibitions, articles, photographs, advice and much more. If it is difficult for you to get to a meeting you could become an individual member, more details from the National Office.

Our region also organises an exhibition every other year with our next one being on Saturday 16th May 2015 at Brighton Racecourse, which we are excited and proud of it too. We are known as a friendly exhibition and have some great demonstrators and hands on sessions planned these will be on the website the middle of March so keep watching via the exhibition pages. Tickets do not go on sale until 28th March. Traders places are almost filled to capacity.

Some branches have changed their venues so do check. The diary is currently waiting for a number of branches who are currently updating their programmes and we will update as soon as they arrive. PLEASE Check news page for flood updates

If you have not had a reply to an urgent enquiry please contact National and they will give you the relevant phone number.
