Calling all skilled decorators

Join The Dulux Academy and Graham & Brown to set a new world record during International Wallpaper Week, which runs from 3 to 9 October.

To support International Wallpaper Week, The Dulux Academy and Graham & Brown will be attempting to set a new Guinness world record for hanging wallpaper in the fastest time. The current record for hanging three pieces on an 8ft high 5.5ft wide wall is currently set at 1 minute and 16.435 seconds.

If you think you have the skills to beat it or simply want to learn more about what The Dulux Academy can offer you and your business, then head down to the Dulux Academy (Petersfield Ave, Slough SL2 5EA) in Slough, to see what the apprentices have been up to and talk to the team, on Friday 7 October from 11am to 4pm.
