“In 1927 Charlie Chaplin was starring in ‘The Circus’, cigarettes were twenty a shilling and George Dawson sold his first radio for just £6”
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Since Dawsons formed in 1927 by George Dawson, great-grandfather of current owner Kevin, the company has grown from strength to strength. Dawsons AV has a rich heritage and we are firmly established as a leader in our industry.
In the early days, we launched some of the first wireless radio sets and today we still continue to introduce the latest breaking technology, in fact we have been the first in our area for many technologies in our field. We were one of the UK’s first Bang & Olufsen dealers in 1964 and one of the pioneering Home Cinema Dealers in the late 80’s using CRT Projectors and screens.
In 2006 our business diversified into the Marine industry, installation high-end audio visual systems on board luxury Super-Yachts.
In 2019, we are planning some big upgrades to our showroom, where again we will make Dawson Home Cinema ‘the’ place to visit for inspiration on how we can integrate into your home.
