“Herefordshire is home to a wealth of talented people.Says Courtyard Shop Retail Consultant, Beth Terzza, “I hope to create a space here at The Courtyard where we can really shout about local artists and makers. Championing our creative community, we have over 40 local suppliers creating everything from contemporary crafts to small handmade gifts and eco-friendly produce. We are very excited to open our doors on 3 November! Come and say hello, shop local and support The Courtyard Trust and your creative community.”

The shop furnishings have been devised by retail Interior company Forma Design, based in Malvern. Sustainability and flexibility were at the core of the design to enable the display of all manner of products. Forma have previously designed retail units for the likes of Selfridges, Lindt, Quicksilver and Harrods, as well as many independent commercial projects.
