Screwfix CEO John Mewett comments: “We know how much our customers love Screwfix LIVE and this year we’ve worked hard to bring it to their fingertips as a seven-day digital event. Screwfix LIVE is our biggest event of the year and this year is no different with demonstrations and fantastic deals from many of our suppliers alongside exclusive talks and competitions. We’re excited to be able to bring Screwfix LIVE to you, and we hope you enjoy our first ever digital event.”
