Stamford Georgian Festival
27th & 28th September 2019
Loomes host a talk and tour on clock-making and watchmaking in the Georgian era. A period when Britain was home to the finest makers in the world and clocks were regarded as scientific instruments.
The Loomes workshops, dating back to the 1570s and once Stamford's Town Gaol, is home to four floors of workshops (up and down steep stairs).
The team of watch and clock-makers at Loomes demonstrate skills and techniques unchanged since the "Golden Age" of British clockmaking.

Loomes are once again, timekeepers for this amazing event. A solid diary date for international competition.
Rockingham is famous for the Loomes Championship,
British Eventing at its finest.
The Championship awards a British made watch to the rider with the closest to optimum time on the cross-country course. Over the years some of the most famous names in Eventing have won, most recently:
2014 Austin O’Connor, IRE
2015 Sir Mark Todd, NZ
2016 Bill Levett, AUS
2017 Oliver Townend, ENG
2018 Jonty Evans, IRE

Loomes are the official timekeepers for the Cottesmore Hunt point to point at Garthorpe. Quite unlike Rockingham International Horse trials – Garthorpe is an old-fashioned rough and tumble horse race, ten miles north of Stamford.
Loomes are proud to sponsor Garthorpe's Cottesmore Point to Point Race on Sunday 24th February 2018.
Garthorpe is 5.6 miles East of Melton Mowbray and 7.5 miles West of Colsterworth on the B676.
From the A1 take the Colsterworth junction and follow the B676 towards Melton Mowbray.

On Monday 15th May 2017 at 14:08 a team of Gurkhas summited Mount Everest wearing a set of our entirely English Made watches, appropriately named "The Everest Watch".
One of the watches was then auctioned, with proceedings being donated to Nepalese charities. This was to aid a devastating avalanche, which was triggered by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
The funds raised from the auction, as well as the team of Gurkhas, then went to work rebuilding schools and communities in the area.

2016 & 2017
Salon QP 2017 was an exceptional event for Loomes this year, as we unveiled "The Everest Watch" that was being auctioned for charity. After a fabulous evening and heart wrenching speeches from Charles Malcolm-Brown; the Chairman of The Mountain Trust, and The Nepali First Secretary, the watch auction finished on the 7th November 2017.
Loomes exhibited at Salon QP in the Saatchi Gallery again in November 2016, this time to unveil their entirely British made watch movement. From jewels to hairsprings, plates to wheels, every component is made in England. An extraordinary achievement.
