York Lifestyle Exhibition 2014; Home, Garden & Leisure show returns for 2nd Year
Independent retailers are bringing the York Lifestyle Exhibition back for its second year. The show features homes, gardens and leisure exhibits where visitors can meet the local experts. The show is supporting a worthy local charity.
The Exhibitors have decided to support the York Blind and Partially Sighted Society as their chosen charity and hope to be able to hand over at least a £1000 to support their good work. Money will be raised by a prize raffle and winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday 2nd.
"Following the success of the first Exhibition in 2013, it seemed natural that we'd return in 2014. Now the Group behind the exibition has several new members which will bring a new dimension to the event." said Steve Whitt from Fabric Gallery & Interiors, one of the exhibitors.
"We are also keen to showcase the quality of products and services available from local independents. When you deal with the exhibitors you'll be talking directly to the experts and the business owners for whom customer service really matters."
Visitors to the show will be able to experience live demonstrations from experts in their field. During the Taster Sessions held throughout the show, visitors can be guided through 4k Television technology, learn how their garden can be transformed into a dream landscape, and find out how to use mood boards in home decor.
This year the Exhibition will have its very own artist in residence; Edward Waite and Doreen Greenshields will be painting live in the Exhibition Hall.
Visitors who pre-register will get free entry into the £1500 charity prize draw.
The show is being hosted by Deans Garden Centre who have donated the exhibition space to the worthy cause and this ensures that every £ raised will go directly to benefit York Blind and Partially Sighted Society. The show will be opened by local MP Julian Sturdy on Saturday 1st February at 10:30am.
