Previous events

Discover Axminster was launched in 2015 at Bridgwater College. The event was a huge success, students and their lecturers enjoyed demonstrations from names such as Bosch, Festool, Numatic and Veritas, as well as revered designer and maker of furniture and boxes Robert Ingham.

Steve Hopper, Programme Manager for Furniture at Bridgwater College said “We saw a great range of demonstrators using the usual high quality kit that Axminster supply. The level of detail of information from the exhibitors was excellent.”

In 2016 the event moved to Rycotewood Furniture Centre in Oxford and followed a similar format.

Previous years saw an attendance of around 200 people. This year is set to be bigger and better than ever before. With more interactive demonstrations and the capability to host up to 1000 guests. Watch this space…
