Martin & Celia accepting our 4 Stars!

This is our 10th Chelsea! Our first Chelsea was back in 2008 when we had a very small “pitch” and it all seemed very new and rather daunting, but ever so enticing too!

Our Stand site progressively moved up the ladder at the showground and in 2013 we found ourselves on Main Way, with a much larger stand enabling us to showcase more of our range.  This position has been so successful that we have maintained it and for 2017 can be round on 295 with our biggest stand to date, this extra size to accommodate the launch of our Swinging Day Bed.

We had a wonderfully fun Press Day, with all sorts of people popping by and in the afternoon Siobhan’s old friend Gary Kemp (of the 80s band Spandau Ballet) helped us launch the Swinging Day Bed with a photo call with his lovely wife Lauren, our stand was postively alive with photographers!

The Swinging Day Bed has so far undoubtedly been the star of the show, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the feedback for it.  It also just happens to be a very comfy spot for a little relax during a very hectic show.

Today, Tuesday 23rd May, we have also been absolutely delighted that our Stand has been awarded four stars!  We must give enormous credit to Sarah Jarman and Anna Murphy, of Jarmanmurphy, who have designed the sublime planting on the stand, it is unbelievably pretty.

Do keep an eye on our Chelsea Gallery, we will be updating this throughout the week and we leave you with the very jolly Alan Titchmarsh himself, and the eagle eyed amongst you will spot Mary Berry in the background, two National Treasures for the price of one!
