Anna and Kel have come back from Way Out West’s first experience of Eroica Britannia tired but very, very happy! Thank you for having us at this stylish and salubrious event.
Eroica is a lifestyle and family festival with a cycling event held in the lovely surroundings of Bakewell showground, in the Peak District.
We could see that event goers had been planning their trip here all year. And who can blame them with so much on offer to indulge their passions for vintage, retro and classic food, music, fashion and cycling geekery. The rain really couldn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.
With our trusty four wheel land cruising beauty we made it to our pitch in the main arena to provide canvas cover for the Best of Britannia pop up shop. Once we’d laid our straw foundations, we were delighted with how our very own British designed and made Caribou Canvas shelter, provided a fitting cover for some of the many quality British brands showcased by BoB. One of these being BoB Ambassador Patrick Grants’ Community Clothing. Patrick has plans we know to boost British manufacturing something very close to our own hearts. What more could two shelter/tent designers and makers want?
We had a fabulous time chatting to and meeting lots of lovely people through hosting a family space under our canvas. Our visor making workshops sold out in a day and our design your own caribou canvas tent colouring competition certainly showed we have some great British designers in the making. This we’re sure would be music to the ears of John Pearce of the Made In Britain campaign, who obviously had to force Anna and Kel to take their surf board selfie!
Thank you Best of Britannia for having us there.
