Some of the best established and emerging brands from UK design and manufacturing will be talking about their work during a Conversation in Creativity event.
The panel of experts will cover issues of sustainability, provenance and the sourcing of good quality, good value suppliers here in the UK versus abroad, as well as what lies behind the British consumer purchase decision.
Speakers include Antony Wallis from Best of Britannia, Barry Jackson from Hivehaus, Claire Norcross from Luminosity, David Chadwick from Carradice and Fiona Candy from UCLan.
It takes place from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday, May 14 at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston (pictured).
