Cheltenham Racecourse

Hosted by the Curtain and Blind Makers Friendly Forum (CAMFF), the October Interiors Show held at Cheltenham Racecourse, is the coming together of a wide range of curtain and blind-making brands, showcasing the latest collections of fabrics and products from the UK, Ireland and beyond.

The Curtain and Blind Makers Friendly Forum (CAMFF) is a 3,500-strong Facebook group that represents a collective of curtain, blind & furnishing makers and interior designers. Both the October Interiors and April Interiors shows offer the opportunity for soft furnishers, upholsterers, interior designers, fitters and installers, suppliers and fabric houses to network, share knowledge and ask questions regarding production, supplies and technical details.

Where can I find Dannells?

Find us in the main exhibition area, where we’ll be more than happy to talk you through how you can extend your existing curtain and blind-making ranges and revenue. We've seen many curtain and blind makers start to use our lampshade making kits and materials, to offer clients a complete and rounded package of curtains, blinds, cushions and lampshades.

On our stand, you’ll find lampshade making kits in a wide range of sizes and shapes for you to explore and the Dannells Team will be on hand to answer all of your questions.
