On Wednesday 8th November 2023, The Master Cutler, Mr Charles Turner DL, was delighted to visit the North Star event held at Gulliver’s Valley.

The North Star event welcomed 500 young people giving them the opportunity to interact with various manufacturing companies and individuals in a series of stands and workshops. The Work-wise Foundation and Skills Street, the organisers of the event, were congratulated on their efforts in bringing together a diverse range of manufacturing forms and companies.

At the event, several companies such as AESSEAL, CBE+, United Bar, Vulcan to the Sky, Forged Solutions, and UKAEA were involved, many of which are Freemen in the the Cutlers Company. The stands showcased various activities to engage students, including pewter casting and seal building. Additionally, attendees had the opportunity to experience Army skills, including autonomous vehicles, construction, and railway, making it a diverse and interactive event.

This was a fantastic event and great to see many of our Freemen with their companies & businesses supporting this educational event.
