The show, which was due to take place in May, has been rescheduled following discussions with Islington Council, venues, suppliers and its stakeholders to ensure the festival can go ahead in the summer.

Attracting an international design audience, the three-day show has over 100 resident showroom, practices and exhibitors taking part.

It hosts exhibitions, installations and street design projects specifically commissioned for the event.

Among the participating bathroom and kitchen showrooms in the Clerkenwell areas are Consentino, Devol, Duravit and Ideal Standard.

CEO of the show’s organiser Media 10 Lee Newton commented: “We will continue to consult with all relevant parties on a regular basis as we work towards delivering the best possible CDW this summer.

“The safety and wellbeing of all those involved is our priority and we are grateful for the support we have received from our exhibitors and partners in making this difficult decision.

“We believe that these new dates provide us with an opportunity to deliver what will be a very successful CDW in the height of British Summer.”
