Country Living Magazine Spring Fair competition

This is a little bit exciting, well I think so anyway.  I have never run a competition through my blog before but I was given the opportunity to offer two complimentary tickets as a competition prize; I thought about this quite carefully before saying yes, largely because I have never run a competition before and also I admit to not be 100% sure it was something I wanted to do.

Until I thought, why not?  I read Country Living magazine so it is not as if it is just some random unconnected thing.  When I go to Tatton Flower Show I always (always) go in the Country Living tent and rarely come out without buying something.  I have a fantastic vase that I bought a few years ago now that is one of my favourite things ever and I also bought a rather wonderful blue suede coat a year or so after that.  I have fallen to its charms more than once.

So - the official blurb they have sent me:

The Country Living Magazine Spring Fair is the perfect way to start the new season and get inspired with lots of ideas for your home and garden with an array of carefully selected exhibitors, from small producers to craftspeople from across the British Isles. The magazine has a long standing tradition of supporting British designers and makers, a tradition that is reflected in the exhibitors you will see at the Fair.  Our Spring Fair takes place from 19-23 March in the Business Design Centre, London. 

Treat yourself to exclusive pieces from the jewellery and fashion collections, sample delicious regional fare and discover furniture, fabrics and accessories to add country style to your home.

Alongside a unique shopping experience, you'll be able to see the pages of the magazine come to life in a range of seasonal features. From lively talks and hands on workshops, to lamb feeding and a beautiful Spring Garden with experts on hand to give you advice, this year’s Spring Fair promises to be a wonderful celebration of the season. 

Crafting Workshop:  With knitting, stitching, needlework and papercrafts. These interactive sessions from talented craftspeople will bring out your imaginative side and you’ll be able to take your finished item home with you. This year speakers from the UK Hand-Knitting Association and the TV programme The Great British Sewing Bee will share lots of handy tips and give you great ideas during their workshop sessions.

Garden Feature and Theatre: Our beautiful Spring Garden returns this year to bring you the delights of springtime. Designed and built by the award winning team at Horticolous, in partnership with Wilstone, this stunning display will feature spring florals and show you how to plant flowers, fruit and vegetables so you’re ready for the start of the new season.  You will also be able to pick up tips from a range of experts at the various talks and demonstrations taking place in the Spring Garden throughout the Fair.

Lifestyle Theatre:  Featuring talks and demonstrations to help you pick up tips to try at home, including Emma Bridgewater, the BBC’s Jules Hudson, and the contestants from The Great British Bake-Off and The Great British Sewing Bee.

We have a late night Gala Evening on Thursday 20th March where the Fair is open until 9pm and you can shop whilst enjoying complimentary wine. It’s a great opportunity for an evening out with friends and a perfect way to start the weekend.
