Even bigger and shinier than before, The Isle of Wight Homes & Interiors Show is back for 2023, following on from the spectacular success of last year’s event (with over 1,000 visitors through the door!) Plus, of course, Style of Wight will be returning to provide seamless on-the-day coverage as the official media partner.
On Sunday 15th October, the gates of East Afton Farm House will open once again to reveal a unique mix of hand-picked homewares, sophisticated gifts, creative interior designers and talented architectural advisors. From renovation inspiration to discovering your next statement piece, the quality collection of hand-picked brands exhibiting on-site will have you covered – offering more design ideas than you could ever hope to pin to your mood board.
The Events Barn takes pride of place, hosting the prime staging sites, whilst Island Roasted offers live barista workshops nearby. Over in the Farmhouse, interiors brands take over their own dedicated rooms, showcasing their irresistible products or involving visitors in interactive experiences. Stalls will also be popping up in the courtyard and exhibition marquee, whilst tempting street food is on offer from a collection of local caterers too – perfect for fueling that second round of buying and browsing.
Entry is free – although VIP tickets are on offer (at £30 per person) giving guests access to complimentary champagne, tasty canapés, a VIP lounge and goody bag filled with surprises and gifts from the event’s sponsors – including Acacia Bay and McCarthy and Booker. With plenty of parking, handy public transport links and bonus goody bags for the first one hundred visitors, you won’t want to miss this exciting autumnal event.
Hoisting the marquees and choreographing the whole event will be local firm Black Swan Events and Promotions – a company with over 25 years in the industry. Director, Hannah Wilson, explains: “Last year was such a successful event and we couldn’t have wished for a better response from all our visitors and exhibitors. We’re thrilled to be coming back this year even bigger and better than before and can’t wait to unveil what we have in store!”. Meanwhile, Style of Wight will provide seamless coverage and pre-event promotion as the event’s official media partner, with Creative Director, Christian Warren, adding “The 2022 show was absolutely fantastic for the Island and East Afton Farmhouse is such a stunning venue. We can’t wait to see everyone again there this year”
