The British Family puts together a thoroughly British fayre

Posted on 7 Aug 2013

A Truly British Family will be celebrating British manufacturing with their British Family Fayre in Kent on 31 August 2013.

James and Emily Bradshaw came up with the idea of living off British goods and services at the start of the year and with the popularity of their project they’re looking to engage with families to tell their story in a fun and child friendly way.

The British Family Fayre, which was swiftly organised in 3 months, brings together over 40 stalls run by British brands from around the country with names such as Tudor Oak, Ebac Ltd, Comins Tea House and Superstitchers involved.

A number of workshops will be run at the event. Lush Cosmetics will give a unique, hands-on and messy insight into making some of their products. Kings of Shaves will give dads shaving demonstrations and the Derwent Pencil Company will be running workshops with world renowned children’s author and illustrator Shoo Rayner.

The Prince’s Trust will be in attendance with the organisation celebrating 30 years of helping young people in UK enterprise. A Prince’s Trust auction will take place at the event with products donated by British industry.

One of the items up for auction is a British made Union flag signed by celebrities and eminent business people, including Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
