They continue to curate the Home & Garden Show to ensure it reflects the best in design and craftsmanship from across the region and beyond and brings together an exciting and complementary range of over 80 exhibitors.



“We loved the variety of exhibitors and spent a long time talking to owners. We were not short of ideas when we left. As a direct result of the show we bought goods and services from several exhibitors and have been more than happy with the quality and expertise on offer.” Visitor Feedback from 2017 Show.
