Best of Britannia has made a name for itself by promoting high quality British-made products, whether that means heritage brands or new start-ups supporting UK manufacturing. 

Running concurrently with the event, Buy British Day will be held on 3 October in a bid to support the British design and manufacturing industry.

Wayne Hemingway MBE (also non-executive director of Best of Britannia) will, along with leading British business owners and directors, talk about why we should get behind the initiative.

Others involved include Timothy Everest Fine Tailoring owner Timothy Everest MBE, Cheaney managing director William Church, and Brompton managing director Will Butler-Adams who will all talk at the event.

Hemingway says: “I decided to get on board with Buy British Day because the time is right for it and we need a lot more consumers, British manufacturers and British brands to support British business.

At the show look out for vintage-inspired furniture by G-Plan, which has reinterpreted lots of striking mid-century and 60s designs.

East Midlands based furniture designer and makers Lee Sinclair Furniture are also worth checking out. They specialise in custom-built bespoke pieces.

Other notable mentions include elegant lighting and homewares by Harriet Caslin, helmets by Hedon, and beautiful hand-made furniture by Donald Alexander.

Even the food and drink follows suit, with Pulled Pork, Meantime Brewing Company and Fever Free Tonic all setting up shop.
