This weekend saw the launch of the Best of Britannia show at the historic Farmiloe building in Clerkewell. The inaugural event brought together some of the best British brands making products in Britain today, and the standard of goods on display was amazing. Deborah Meaden, who owns Fox Brothers and The Merchant Fox, opened the event and spoke to the press about why we should all be supporting British manufacturing. Even Mary Portas popped in for a browse, but probably the best guest appearance was made by Basil Brush – that fox has style!

If you didn’t get to the event this time then here is a taste of what you missed, with more pictures to follow later in the week.

    I would just like to say what a fantastic event this was. Congratulations to all concerned. The quality, skill, expertise and craftsmanship on display was truly inspiring. I spend far too much, know where to order all my christmas presents from now, and can’t wait for the next one to do it all again.

      Hi Mike

      Thanks for your comment and glad that you liked the show.
      There is definitely a movement towards buying products made in Britain now – just need to keep up the momentum.
