Go Crackers is a Lincolnshire based company, creating and hand making crackers for over 15 years. Jane Godfrey bought the company in 2015, and together with her sister Tanya Bromley, is continuing to build this successful family business, providing high quality products, in the UK and Internationally.
“I’ve always had an interest in craft, but until I had a career break from nursing to have my children, I hadn’t thought of it as a job. I love that I now earn a living from what was simply a hobby. My favourite element of the job is talking to customers about their bespoke crackers, and what event they are for- I’ve heard some great stories, and I love the fact that our products then become part of that story” -Jane
Christmas crackers have been a traditional Christmas favourite in Britain since the 1800’s.
First created by Tom Smith, a confectioner, who wanted to create his own version of the Parisian bon bons, sweets wrapped in pretty coloured papers.
The “crack” came later, after Tom had sat listening to his crackling fire. His sons, who continued his business, then added the hats and later novelty gifts, making the crackers we know and love today.
“After working in customer service for many years it’s lovely to be able to cater to our client’s needs on a one to one basis. I feel like we really get to know you and love seeing your photos of our products on your special occasions. From start to finish we really pour our hearts into our creations. I get to help design and make our beautiful crackers whilst working with my sister who is a true inspiration – I have the best job in the world!” – Tanya
At Go Crackers, we design and make a large range of beautiful, unique products, with no restrictions on numbers, unlike the usual boxed products- so you can order 1-99 or more for your event. Our crackers come with snap, hat and joke, unless you choose otherwise- if you buy this option, one end of the cracker will be left open for you to add your own gift. We have a range of sweet treats, games, adult, luxury and childrens’ gifts you can then add.
Crackers are a very versatile product; they look great on any table for any occasion. Our 10” Crackers with chocolate gifts make superb favours for Weddings and other events- the smaller size is perfect for multiple place settings around a table. In the 14” size, you can choose from Red, Gold and Silver. Our naughty adult crackers are a fun addition to any hen or stag do, while the games content in any of our handmade crackers are great for parties.
We do also stock boxed products from Celebration, Robin Reed, and Tom Smith. We are passionate about what we do, and about providing excellent customer service on a one to one basis- we enjoy talking to customers- creating bespoke designs for special events is something we really enjoy.
