Toby Powell is the managing director of Powell Craft. He chose exhibiting at the annual trade show in Harrogate as a highlight of his job – he has been attending it since he was 6 years old when his father William was at the helm of the company which at that time sold wooden toys. Harrogate is doubly significant to Toby because he met his wife, Kate, there. Based in Brighton, Toby loves the beach and rambles on the Sussex Downs.
Holiday destination: Rio de Janeiro or Rome and always partial to a ruin!
Favourite book or film: The Man Who Would Be King is Toby’s favourite film and he recommends Bill Bryson’s Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe as an ideal holiday read.
