12th Annual Jigsaw Festival 2023
& 10th British Jigsaw Championships 2023

The 2023 Festival took place from Friday 23 June to Wednesday 28 June. Over 1500 completed jigsaws in varying sizes, shapes, topics and manufacturers were available in an ever changing display and all of them were for sale. There were also bargain tables of used and brand new sealed puzzles and an opportunity to help complete a jigsaw whilst you were there; something for everyone to enjoy!
