The private opening night on Tuesday 16 June, is expected to attract over 400 invited guests including friends, family, VIPs and representatives from local businesses and educational establishments.

The company is based in Aberdeen, but has a large client-base in London and the rest of the UK. Paradox will also be sponsoring a ‘People’s Prize’. The winner of this award will be chosen by members of the public who will be invited to vote for their favourite work when they visit the Show. The winner of this award will be announced during the week following the Show.
