Home Show 2024……our 11th show!

We are excited to announce that our 11th annual Home Show Exhibition will be taking place on Tuesday 10th & Wednesday 11th September this year.

We are pretty much keeping to the format that has worked so well over these years and during the two day show we will be showcasing what makes us one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and designers of children’s playground equipment. Alongside factory tours and the chance to see brand new equipment in the playground outside our offices, we will also be hosting a series of seminars from leading influencers to the play industry.
