Outdoor Events Resume

After 17 months without any outdoor exhibition work taking place due to the pandemic, May 2021 finally enabled us to exhibit our products to the public.  And what a location to resume our events. The grand 16th century english country house setting of Burghley House and Gardens near Stamford, Peterborough. The event was a Game and Country Fair, hosted by Living Heritage Events, and covid secure with a restricted attendance and strict social distancing and cleansing in operation. With glorious weather it was a welcome return to the events circuit and to finally meet up with our trader friends and customers face to face. However, despite the successful vaccine rollout, 2021 isn't without its show casualties, with many cancelling early...

Merry Christmas........and Thank You!

May we wish all our customers a Merry Christmas from all the team here at Birchwood Leather. This year has been a challenge for everybody. As for ourselves, we usually rely on exhibiting at major outdoor events in which to retail our products. As the entire events season was cancelled we focused solely online in the hope of being able to continue our small business. Thankfully with government support and steady online trade we’ve been able to ‘ride the storm’ and hopefully, with fingers crossed, 2021 should see the return of some normality and the resumption of the events circuit. We hope to see our customers again in person next year. In the meantime, THANK YOU for your support, especially...
