The first ever Buy British Day – taking place on 3rd October 2014 – launched this week at the House of Commons.

The idea has sprung from the Best of Britannia team and is being backed by some high profile names, including the bike trade's own Brompton.

The launch was hosted by Wayne Hemingway MBE (non-executive director of Best of Britannia), with a panel discussion on ‘Why consumers should buy British’ featuring Timothy Everest MBE (owner of Timothy Everest Fine Tailoring), William Church (Cheaney MD), Will Butler-Adams (Brompton MD) and Cressida Granger (Mathmos MD).

Hemingway said: “I decided to get on board with Buy British Day because the time is right for it and we need a lot more consumers, British manufacturers and British brands to support British business.”

Antony Wallis, one of the founders of Best of Britannia, added: “We have championed British made brands and businesses at the annual Best of Britannia event for several years now, and launching Buy British Day is the next logical step for us. There are so many top quality British made products out there, so the time is right that we have a day to create consumer awareness around the subject and encourage people to support these brands and makers.”
