“We need an event to draw visitors into Henley during the winter months. Our town is full of estate agents and design shops because we LOVE our homes and gardens here. A show dedicated to interiors and gardens makes sense!” says Niki.
The journey of finding support and sponsors has begun incredibly well with the district and the town council, alongside the Henley Business Partnership supporting the event from the start. Further sponsorship has come from the town’s design shops and property services such as Mercers Solicitors and Knights Oriental Rugs.
As well as being a collaboration of the local businesses, the show also has a charitable side with a highlight of the weekend being a ‘Home Decor Fashion Show’. Local sporting heroes will model pieces of furniture and decor down a turf runway to create a room set. Money created during this fun event will go towards building a multi-sensory room at The Chiltern Centre, a respite centre for disabled children in Henley-on-Thames.
Niki is currently organising the exhibitors and has half the stands already booked. If you are interested to find out more details about participating then please contact the office at:
