The show is celebrating its 20th birthday this year, and promises its 2013 edition to be ‘the largest, most diverse’ event to date, according to organisers.
More than 140 designers, illustrators and makers will be showing work at the event in disciplines including print, product, interior, homeware, ceramics and jewellery design.
New spaces for this year include Spark, an area dedicated to new designers, and a Food Hall specializing in ‘artisan’ edibles.
A boon to those looking to get creative themselves, the crafthouse space has also been expanded, and will be hosting workshops, demonstrations and children’s activities.
These include the Design Your Own Christmas workshop, where visitors will be invited to have a go at screen-printing Christmas cards or ‘upcycling’ their unwanted bits and bobs into Christmas decorations and gifts.

Remaining on a canine tip, Creature Clothes will be showing its wares, a range of products for dogs and cats:
We’re also quite taken with this cute owl/bike t shirt by illustrator Harriet Russell:
