Cornwall LivingIssue #111
A decade of success
Cornwall Home & Garden Show (formally Home & Lifestyle Show) recently celebrated its 10th year with triumphant success.
On Saturday 19th and 20th June, it was with eager anticipation that Cornwall Home & Garden Show opened its doors to visitors. This was an exciting moment, not only because of the lack of such events since the onset of the pandemic, but also because it marked ten years of success for this much-loved Cornish event.
With Covid restrictions in place, the show (which was sponsored by Duke Stone, and supported by Shop Cornish and Cornwall Living) welcomed an impressive 4,000 visitors to peruse more than 130 exhibitors. And in the wake of the pandemic, as more than ever have found ways in which they would like to improve their homes, there was no shortage of inspiration, with stands covering everything from homewares, interiors and gardens, to renewables and self-build. There was also the ever-popular ‘A Bite of Cornwall’ food and drink market, offering show-goers a chance to grab a coffee or a bite and sit down to chat through their new ideas.
Throughout the event, which took place at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre in Wadebridge, conversation was flowing and there was a palpable buzz among the stands. In fact, the exhibitors reported more interest than ever before from visitors looking for new ways in which to approach their home improvements, renovations and self-builds.
Managing Director Andrew Weaver says: “It was a pleasure to see so many people out enjoying themselves. With this many visitors attending it was testament that human connection and treating the senses is something we all want back again, and it’s evident that you can’t beat face to face discussion and seeing the products in the real world. Being an event organiser, this has been a tough year, so the support we received is greatly appreciated. We now look forward to organising the Cornwall Home Improvement & Self Build Show in October.”
Been contemplating a home improvement or self-build project? Then don’t miss the Cornwall Home Improvement & Self Build Show, taking place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre, Wadebridge.
