An historic former Post Office building will be home to this year’s Best of Britannia event for the first time it has ventured outside of London.

After three years in the capital, the BoB North will showcase the best in British design with a host of inspiring exhibitors most of which are based in the North of England from May 15-17 in the historic Post Office building and Market Square.

And the event’s non-executive director, renowned designer and proud Lancastrian, Wayne Hemmingway, can’t wait to get back to his roots.

“As a born and bred Lancastrian, who manufactures much of my company’s designs in the county, I am delighted that BoB North is coming to Preston where the impact of the event in a region with such a proud manufacturing and creative heritage is bound to be huge,” he said.

“The realisation of quality are becoming key issues in manufacturing and a growing number of consumers here understand the boost to the UK economy to jobs and to the sustainability and ethical sourcing that ‘Made in the UK’ brings.”

Ruth Connor, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire said: “It’s going to be a fabulous showcase for Lancashire and a perfect day out for anyone who loves style, innovation and retail therapy.”
