Her first Uckfield Antiques Fair – she plans to make it an annual event – will take place at the Civic Centre over the weekend of October 9 and 10.

Expect 25 dealers from around the country at a fair which will have the typical Penman flavour.

As at her events at Chelsea, West London, Chester and Petersfield, there is traditional quality with the assurance of serious vetting. Period furniture specialists Wilsons of Worthing will not have to travel far to exhibit, while AD Antiques will come down from Staffordshire with 20th century art pottery, William McAdam will bring his period glass from Edinburgh and Henry Baines, from Tunbridge Wells, promises some fine carvings alongside his early oak.

Caroline says: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to bring a high-quality antiques fair to East Sussex and, for the first time ever, I can walk to work.”

Admission is just £2.
