House & Garden Show Builds on First Year Success
Kitchens, home accessories, garden furniture, paint and antiques are just some of things which are being exhibited at this year’s Henley House and Garden Show on the weekend of the 12/13 March.
After the success of last year when the show attracted over 4,000 people, the House and Garden Show is back again this year with the same great format. There will be 40-50 exhibitors of luxury interiors, gardening products and service providers in both a large marquee on the Market Place and in the Town Hall. The Love Local market will be in the Over 60s club in Greys Road car park this year and will feature a mixture of home décor accessories.
The weekend will also see a superb programme of speakers, cooking demonstrations and upcycling workshops again. Julia Kendall from BBC’s DIY SOS has agreed to come back again this year to do a talk
and so has upcycling guru, Jay Blades who has been working with Kirsty Allsop. Victoria Newton from Chelsea Fringe in Henley will be talking about plans for this year’s event in June. A full programme of events will be published shortly.
The show organiser, Niki Schafer said, “I was really pleased with the attendance and feedback from last year’s show and we’re building on the success of that for this year. We’ve already attracted some great
new exhibitors including Fermoie (fabric supplier) and Slab Tiles plus we have Phyllis Court Club and Benjamin Moore paints (just launching in the UK) as new sponsors. We have a few exhibition spaces remaining and we hope that it will be a sell out again this year.”
Alastair Broom, Managing Director of GarageTek who are exhibiting again this year said, “We are really looking forward to this year’s show as we had such an exciting time last year. Everyone we spoke to was impressed with the wide range of quality products on offer both in the marquee and the hall, and we are looking forward to a really good show this year.”
Chris Green from Henley Interiors said, “I am really looking forward to launching our new company at the show this year and showing our range of flooring products and joinery services that we are offering.”
Lynne Lambourne, Director of Love Local said, “Our new venue, the Over 60s club will be perfect and much more visible and accessible. There will be 10-15 stallholders offering a lovely mix of affordable accessories to style your home. There will be some firm favourites and some new exhibitors.”
The show will be open on Saturday between 10-6pm and on Sunday between 10-4pm and is free entry. New for this year, the show will open each day the show with a musical performance from a local group. The alternative home décor fashion show is back by popular demand on the Saturday afternoon with a few new model surprises. The show will be supporting the Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children.
