This year’s edition of Glee – the International Festival for Garden, Leisure and Pet which takes place from June 27 to June 29 at the NEC in Birmingham – will see a whole new pavilion devoted to Home, Gift & Clothing.
Retailers from garden centres, department stores, independent gift shops, and leisure and tourist destinations will find a wealth of inspiration for seasons to come. Here are just a few of the exhibitors you can look forward to seeing in this sector of the show:
Museums and Galleries: Stand 7A60-B61
Museums & Galleries (M&G) is one of the UK’s leading producers of quality art cards and design-led gift stationery, with a collection that is home to some of the most highly regarded heritage and arts brands in Britain and beyond. M&G also works with contemporary independent artists and emerging creative talent to source beautiful imagery for ranges.
Rainbow Designs: Stand 8G30
Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, Paddington Bear and Guess How Much I Love You are just some of the much-loved nursery collections of soft toys and nursery essentials you can see at Glee. For more than 50 years, Rainbow Designs has been creating high-quality forever toys, inspired by characters from children’s literature, for babies and children of all ages to provide comfort, fun and sensory learning as well as beautiful décor for any nursery.

Little Karma Co.: Stand 8F52
Little Karma Co handcrafts 100% natural pure essential oil candles and donates 5% of all profits to the Trussell Trust. Its mission is to rid the world of toxic, environmentally-unfriendly candles – one refillable, clean burning candle at a time. The company also wants to give back to its community, which is why it has chosen to donate to the Trussell Trust to help others during the cost-of-living crisis. The collection includes Refillable Candles, Initial Candles, Christmas collection, Candle Refills, and the new Slogan Candle Range. Little Karma Co. can also offer retailers a fully customisable white label service with low minimum order values.
