A substantial presence this year was Premier Decorations which occupied the entire new Hall H, bringing not only its Christmas and gift ranges, but Halloween and garden accessories too. John Athwal, managing director, comments: "This year was one of the best for as long as I can remember. We had a really good time in our new home and saw lots of new customers. We were delighted that both existing and potential new customers made the effort to visit us. With the organisers reporting a 10% increase in visitors, surely Harrogate Christmas & Gift Fair is a must for any serious Christmas decoration buyer and Premier will be back next year."
