Hooray, the sun has finally come out to play! It’s not just the weather getting warmer, things are heating up in preparation for the Hampton Court Palace Artisan Festival as there is officially only 1 week to go!
To help get you in the mood for luxury gifts, shopping and plenty of food, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the fantastic exhibitors that you can expect to see next weekend. Plus, with Father’s Day just around the corner too, we can help you find the perfect present for the father-figures in your life. Read on below to see the treasure trove of delights that are waiting…
Abol Coffee Co.
Love the taste of freshly- ground coffee but don’t have time to prepare it? Abol Coffee Co. are here to save the day with their speciality coffee bags that can be brewed in minutes, without any fuss or mess. This coffee saves you time, but certainly doesn’t scrimp on flavour, as each bag contains 100% organic arabica from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia, giving it a rich, indulgent taste with bright notes of vibrant lemon and juicy stone fruits… yum!
Treat the coffee connoisseur in your life to a beautifully gift-wrapped box of 10 luxury coffee bags, their morning routine will never be the same again!
Visit the Abol Coffee Co. website to find out more.
Bespoke House Portraits
There really is no place like home, so why not commemorate your favourite place with a beautiful work of art from Bespoke House Portraits. Eli Ofir is the artist behind these wonderful pieces, hand drawing each one, giving it that truly unique touch. Send your photos to Eli or request an on-site visit and away you go!
If that wasn’t enough, you’ll not only have a framed portrait, but will also receive a scanned copy on CD that you can use to print on greeting cards, letterheads, stationary and so much more. It promises to be a gift that will last for decades.
Find out more on the Bespoke House Portraits website.
Red Door Posters
If you’re looking for artwork with a conscience then you’ve come to the right place. Red Door Posters recycle forgotten, throw-away art and design, giving them a new lease of life! Come along to the Artisan Festival and browse their selection of often-forgotten pieces of great design, offering a range of genres from the rare and highly collectable to more recent and contemporary – there’s plenty to choose from! We can’t think of a better gift to have on the wall and treasure for years to come.

The Vine Cellar
The Vine Cellar has been formed by three friends with a mission; to source quality wine directly from those who make it, visiting vineyards, getting to know the wines and their history. Their wine will make the perfect gift for your dad, step-dad or grandad or in fact any special someone who likes to unwind with a glass or two of something delicious and discover new gems in the wine industry. The Vine Cellar promises to deliver the wow factor your Dad deserves.
If you’re joining us at the Artisan Festival this year, then stop by their stand or visit The Vine Cellar website to find out more and benefit from their great personalised service.
The Brit Workshop
Looking for a fantastic piece of homeware to display in pride of place? The Brit Workshop are the ones for you!
Discover their variety of handcrafted wooden gifts, home decorations and furniture at the Artisan Festival next week. The Brit Workshop are dedicated to crafting something special each and every time, so whether you’re looking for some new shelving, chopping boards, coat hooks or even a bespoke commissioned piece on request, you’re sure to find a wonderful new addition to your home. Plus, there is an option for personalisation across many items, to truly give that unique finish.
See the full range on The Brit Workshop website.
Does your dad, step-dad, grandad or any special man in your life fancy themselves as a bit of a whizz in the kitchen? If so, treat them to a brand-new piece of kitchen kit courtesy of JonoKnife. The JonoKnife is a handcrafted bread saw, designed to make even the crustiest bread feel like slicing through butter, so the days of squished bread and wasted loaves will be far behind you.
To make the present even more perfect, why not treat them to the matching bread board too! Find out more and see the JonoKnife in action via their website or at the Festival itself.
The first gift that springs to mind when you think of Father’s Day is beer, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a standard gift. Sambrook’s has been brewing in South West London since 2008 and have been selling award winning beer all over London ever since.
Treat the father-figure in your life to a day out at the Artisan Festival and give them the chance to enjoy fresh cask and keg beer in the sunshine from this fantastic brewery. Don’t worry if you can’t join us as you can order bottles and cans to enjoy at home… cheers!
