The British Sugarcraft Guild (BSG) is made up of 7 regions after 1 region joined with the surrounding areas. 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 current 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 our next one was on Saturday 20th May 2017 at Brighton Racecourse, where we have received favourable reviews. We are known as a friendly exhibition and had some great demonstrators and hands on sessions, friendly and helpful traders. Plus we had some amazing sugar works there so do go to the exhibition pages to view the exhibits.
The BSG International Exhibition at Telford also takes place 21st-22nd May 2016 at the Telford exhibition Centre and we are all really looking forward to go to this great event.For more info visit our diary pages.

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.

Happy Sugarcrafting and just have fun!
