We were really excited to see these fantastic images of our white folding chairs which have been used by EAT NewcastleGateshead recently.

EAT NewcastleGateshead was established in 2007 by NewcastleGateshead Initiative.  It’s a regional festival with a strong national reputation for innovation and excellence that celebrates the many ways in which good food can enhance our lives.
