Surface Design Show 2010

There are two shows I attend year in year out without fail. The first is of course 100% Design, a round up of everything fabulous in the design industry. The second is The Surface Design Show, a more detailed, trade focussed event open to the public showcasing the current uses and trends in interior and exterior surfacing. A lot smaller that 100percent, this event is all about new product launches, samples to you door via a scan badge (:D) and an amazing seminar programme –

Keep Warm


this weekend at the Small World Solar Stage and Festival Winter Warmer II. Small Worlds is a twice yearly festival group promoting sustainable living and creating nurturing communities in music.

“This is our big winter gathering of the year, it’s the event everyone makes it to.
A real chance to meet up with the summer friends we loose touch with over the winter.
A chance to smile, and mean it.
A chance to make plans and find you’ve just inspired others in theirs

But mostly a chance to celebrate in the way we love.”
