Blue the world's favourite colour. This opens a new browser window.

Is blue your favourite colour? Well you’re not alone if it is.  It just happens to be the world’s favourite colour!  And a good friend of mine and fellow Colour Group GB member, Janet Best, is putting on a fabulous all day event all about the colour blue.  The morning session will be on the fascinating “History of Blue” whilst the afternoon event focuses on “Why denim never fades”.

Janet chose to create this event on the colour blue given that blue is everywhere and has established itself as the world’s favourite colour.  “I love to mix things up and get different people and groups talking and working together as there is so much mutual interest to share. Blue seemed the perfect colour that everyone has experienced and has something to say. It touches everyone’s lives.”
