As far as we can tell there has been a huge boost in interest and visitor numbers since the event launched in May 2010 and hopefully this will grow in future years and continue to promote the area as a key destination for viewing, exhibiting and purchasing contemporary design.
It's also been largely responsible for the impressive influx of visitors to Marsden Woo to see the brilliant exhibitions we are currently showing: Pots - Plates - Chairs by Martin Smith (main gallery) and The Wire and Other Works by Stephenie Bergman (Marsden Woo Project Space).
Hopefully the avid visitors won't be put off by the pouring rain for the last day of the festival today...
