Since 2005 Design Event has been showcasing good design and supporting designers across the Northern region. We do this through a range of programmes including the Northern Design Festival, showcasing at the London Design Festival and our talks programme featuring leading designers.
Our online design event store features a carefully curated selection of works from our exhibitions, the perfect place to buy beautiful design.
Over the last decade we have welcomed over 250,000 visitors to our festivals, worked with in excess of 1,450 designers, delivered 27 talks, 15 workshops, and held over 130 exhibitions and events.
We are currently developing our programme for 2016 and will be announcing plans soon.
