Clerkenwell Design Week rescheduled for July

March 2020

In light of the global impact caused by the Coronavirus, Clerkenwell Design Week will be postponed until 14th to 16th July 2020.

“As the UK’s leading independent design festival, this decision has not been taken lightly,” explains Lee Newton, CEO of organisers Media 10, “but the health, safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, clients and staff is our number one priority.”

“Agreement has been reached, following productive discussions with Islington Council, to ensure that the new date will deliver the much-loved festival without compromise, bringing its undeniable buzz and splash of pink to the streets of Clerkenwell this summer,” says Newton.  “All of our suppliers, venues, and stakeholders have collaborated to agree this new date and to ensure that the event goes ahead – in this time of unprecedented adversity the design community has really come together to ensure that one of the world’s leading design festivals still takes place in 2020.”

“We will continue to consult with all relevant parties on a regular basis as we work towards delivering the best possible CDW this summer.  The safety and wellbeing of all those involved is our priority, and we are grateful for the support we have received from our exhibitors and partners in making this difficult decision.  We believe that these new dates provide us with an opportunity to deliver what will be a very successful CDW in the height of British Summer,” concludes Newton.   “Our thoughts continue to be with everyone that has been affected by the situation and we look forward to uniting the international design community in Clerkenwell, 14th to 16th July.
