New distribution centre to be opened by Boycie from Only Fools and Horses as part of celebrations.

Mask-a-rade to mark five years in September

Party mask maker Mask-a-rade will be celebrating its fifth anniversary later this year, with the opening of a new distribution centre next to its HQ in Southam, Warwickshire.

‘Nelson Mandela House’ will be officially opened by Boycie from Only Fools and Horses, John Challis, on September 28th at 2pm. After securing the licence to produce official merchandise for the BBC sitcom, the whole event will take on an Only Fools and Horses theme.

"Del Boy cocktails will be served from the Nags Head bar, we will have the Trotters yellow three-wheeler there and John Challis will be signing copies of his fantastic books," said director Ray Duffy. "You will also be able to purchase Mask-a-rade products at a special discounted rate.

"If it’s anything like the opening of our Albion House headquarters in 2011, with Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee, it will be another memorable occasion."
