A Tour of the Ercol Factory

A Tour of the Ercol Factory

Ercol’s Chairman, Henry Tadros, will give a tour of the ercol factory in Princes Risborough to celebrate the Chiltern Chairs Festival. Due to manufacturing constraints the factory is not open to the public so it is a rare opportunity to see inside the 16,000sqm factory. Henry Tadros, Lucian Ercolanis great-grandson, will tour the group throughout the factory looking at machining, steam bending, assembling and finishing of the classic ercol designs.

The tour will take approximately 2 hours.

For adults. Unfortunately no children (under 16) are allowed in the factory.

Accessibility info: While the factory floor is accessible the nature of a tour around the factory means there is a fair amount of walking.

Facilities info: Toilets available, with coffee and tea available on arrival.

Location: Ercol, Summerleys Road, Princes Risborough, HP27 9PX

This tour is happening on Thursdays 11 & 18 July.

This tour is free to attend. Please consider making a donation if you are able to do so.

Suggested donation £5 per person.

This event is part of the Chilterns Chairs Festival, running through July in celebration of the unique chairmaking heritage of Wycombe and the local area.

Join us to celebrate the stories, the chairs and the surroundings which make up our history. There’s something for everyone, so get involved!

The Chiltern’s Chairs Festival is being organised by Wycombe Museum and is funded by the Chalk, Cherries & Chairs Landscape Partnership.
