Shopping! Best of Britannia

All Weekend

Best of Britannia is an uplifting and inspirational retail and events platform for the growing number of people looking to purchase high quality products, made right here in Britain by people who take great pride in making things beautifully

Best of Britannia (BOB) is proud to be at the forefront of discovering the finest emerging British Brands and placing them alongside heritage brands that have been trading for decades.  
BOB is at the vanguard of a UK-wide phenomenon, as the manufacturing skills that were the foundation of Britain’s past prosperity undergo an extraordinary renaissance. From the Scottish Highlands to the South Downs, from Norwich to Penzance, we are witnessing the re-birth of the well-made object – the high-quality artefact, produced here by people who have honed their skills over generations. Craftsmen and women, artisans, designers and manufacturers have been curated and united at BOB – we want to sell to the world the products from the men and women who have devoted themselves to their creation. With the Creative Industries bringing a staggering collective £87 billion into the UK economy and employing 1 in every 11 people it is time that we started shouting about it from the rooftops, showing how proud we are of how brilliant we collectively are.
The BOB team came together in 2012 and since then, we have devoted ourselves to building a collective of brands and their makers via, first an event platform and now an accompanying online retail platform. We hope that at Eroica Britannia you will discover, purchase and enjoy the fantastic products available and the stories behind them which you can relay on to your friends and families and thereby pass the baton on.

Best of Britannia are delighted to be showcasing and working with a great selection of brands at Eroica Britannia 2018. Come to the Best of Britannia area to meet the makers of the brands and take a look at some of their fantastic products, many of which are also available to buy online at
