What is the Best of Britannia?
When I saw the title of this emphasised British event, I was full of curiosity. On the 5th Oct this year, I bought the tickets and went for a look.
It was an event all about British Production. In the Farmiloe Building of Clerkenwell London, it was displaying a car, a boat, and a tent at the entrance. Something that relating to luxury casual life became my first impression to what British considered the best.
The fact is, the products displayed in the exhibition ranging from clothing, cosmetics, leather products, home products to simply bicycles are all well made with a significant vintage industrial design. There was a time when Britain as one of the leading economic bodies, and now, people do miss the ‘good old days’.
It says on the BOB Facebook page as well as the website, the event would showcase nice British food as well as music performance at night time. I have to say I am very keen on exploring nice English food as I didn’t find any before. But when I got to the yard outside the building, there’s just a hamburger stand and a small bar and a wine shop where no one is buying it. I just can’t help but wonder, is this some kind of British humor?
