Dragons Den panellist and business entrepreneur Deborah Meaden has thrown her support behind the new BOB: Best of Britannia exhibition later this year.
 
Meaden’s company, The Merchant Fox, will be at the event showcasing its collection of goods produced in the British Isles, and will also host a party on the opening night. Meaden has invested more than £1.6m in 26 businesses over the BBC show’s six series.
 
The Merchant Fox luxury collection will be split into home and interiors, work and travel, and accessories and style. The firm will also offer customers an appointment service to place bespoke orders.
 
The BOB: Best of Britannia exhibition looks to tell the story of British manufacturing excellence by highlighting the work of local producers and products. It will be held at the Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell, London, from 5 to 7 October 2012.
 
“BOB: Best of Britannia comes at an ideal time for British brands producing in this country,” Meaden said. “Domestically and internationally, ‘Made in Britain’ is undergoing a resurgence. Now it’s up to all of us who manufacture in this country to continue what we’re doing to showcase what makes us, as a nation, Great Britain.”
 
Other exhibitors confirmed at BOB: Best of Britannia include BAC Mono, Pashley Cycles, Hiut Denim and Mark Powell Bespoke Tailoring. Award-winning songwriter Guy Chambers will curate the Best of British music stage, providing live entertainment every evening and presenting up-and-coming artists.
 
A pop-up cinema is also being planned to showcase short, documentary and feature-length British films.
 
“By buying legitimate British brand items, produced by expert craftsman using first-class materials, we are helping to keep these skills alive in the UK,” BOB director Antony Wallis said.
