Wow what a month! The Olympic summer is nearly over, and there’s an autumnal, back-to-school breeze in the air, but we are secretly looking forward to crunchy orange leaves, pub fires, woolly jumpers and London Fashion Week.
But before any of that, we are super SUPER busy preparing for our inaugural exhibition which is opening on 29th September, entitled, “Geographical Blueprint: The Art of the Handcrafted Globe”. (Also the first ever globe exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society, making us feel very special and honoured to be offered the privilege.)
Our show features a few of our signature pieces, as well as new exciting models which are yet to be unveiled, many mini desk globes and the huge Churchill globe standing over 1.5m high!
The exhibition will host a working “Bellerby & Co. Globemaking Studio” and we’re relocating our trained craftsmen and ladies to the RGS for two weeks, where you can see how a globe is made. Exciting stuff. There are also stunning Bellerby maps and bags which you can purchase on the day, and a completely beautiful coffee table globe book, of which ALL proceeds go to the wonderful Elephant Family charity who are in support of our event.
We have a pair of tickets to our exclusive champagne reception to be won, (Tuesday 2nd October) so for a chance to be part of the special event just pop your email address in the box HERE. Good luck!
As you can imagine the studio is a very busy place right now, and with our new website just recently launched, we can now take online orders for the ever popular mini desk globes (perfect Christmas gifts) and you can browse through our whole collection in your pyjamas if you wish.
Pop in and say hi at the Royal Geographical Society from 29th September, we would really love to see you there.
