Pinball Heaven at the Ideal Home Show Posted 17th March 2016 by by deeperblue Pinball Machines at Olympia London Taking place between 18th March and 3rd April, the Ideal Home Show is the UK’s premier interior design event showcasing everything from eco builds to smart technology. With over 500 exhibitors at London’s Olympia, Pinball Heaven were thrilled to be asked to take part. “The organisers approached us to see if we would like to install pinball machines into the Duke’s Head pub for the duration of the exhibition and we were happy to be able to say yes,” said Pinball Heaven’s Managing Director, Phil Palmer. “A key focus of my business is to promote the pinball culture to a wider audience and what better way to do this than to have our pinball machines showcased at one of the UK’s busiest exhibition venues during the Ideal Home Show.” Whoa Nellie and Spiderman Vault After discussions with the organisers, who had decided to go for a retro feel, Pinball Heaven have donated Whoa Nellie and Spiderman Vault, two games which Phil thinks will suit the Duke’s Head location. Pinball Heaven Supporting the Katie Piper Foundation In supplying the machines, Pinball Heaven are also helping to support the Katie Piper Foundation, the Ideal Home Show’s charity partner for the second year running, who work tirelessly to make it easier for people to live with burns and scars. Each machine costs just £1 to play, with 100% of the money raised donated to the charity. Phil said, “I am pleased to be able to work with the event organisers to support such a worthwhile charity and I hope people visiting the show enjoy playing the games we have supplied.” You can find more information about the Duke’s Head Pub by visiting the Ideal Home Show website http://www.idealhomeshow.co.uk/ and, if you want to support the Katie Piper Foundation, their website is http://katiepiperfoundation.org.uk/ Whether you want to look at pinball machines for sale or you simply want to talk to the most knowledgeable pinball machine experts in the UK, just get in touch as we are always happy to talk all things pinball!
