We will operate under the guidance set by Public Health England after 19th July 2021 and in line with the industry’s All Secure Standard – a comprehensive set of guidelines for exhibitions and events. For enhanced safety and peace of mind we have added some additional measures and we ask everyone in attendance to adhere to our Covid Commitment.

All attendees must be prepared to show proof of either:

a) having had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before attending*


b) a negative Lateral Flow Test result**, which can be taken at home or at a recognised centre free of charge, within 48 hours of the event.

These will be randomly checked to avoid congestion on entry. Your data will not be requested, you will simply need to show proof to a member of show staff.

Please visit our Covid Commitment page to read the full Covid commitment and guidelines.

Following recent events in London, Alexandra Palace are conducting a bag search policy. Please have your bags ready to be searched on arrival to the Palm Court Foyer. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

There are 1400 car park spaces available at Alexandra Palace, so if you prefer to avoid public transport there will be plenty of parking available for the restricted number of attendees

Due to new regulations imposed by the local council, it is no longer possible for blue badge holders to park at the front of the building. Instead, they are asked to park at the back of the venue, but we will have a small buggy to transport disabled visitors to the entrance. (Please note this vehicle ony takes a few passengers at a time and may mean a short wait. The alternative is a ‘flat’ 8 minute walk to the entrance). For more information on Disabled Access at the show, please click here.

The Knitting & Stitching Show will take place 6th – 9th October 2022.

We have unfortunately had to take the very difficult decision not to run The Knitting & Stitching Show in Dublin for the second year running. 

The challenges of bringing exhibitors and the organising team from the UK have currently proved too difficult to overcome with ongoing complexities presented by Covid-19. 

We will miss seeing the Irish knitting and stitching community this year, but very much hope to stage a show in Ireland again in the future.
