Salvo 17 will this year have an eco-friendly living theme which will be split into two areas: old-tech pieces for sale and contemporary green building, says Salvo founder Thornton Kay.
He adds: “Antiques and reclamation exhibitors will be encouraged to bring along a few items which fit the green theme, such as Victorian water filters, antique earth closets, old off-grid machinery, interesting early building technology, old wind pumps, portable iron cooking ranges, hand-powered kitchen equipment and mechanical garden equipment.”
Kay is also keen to have some big-ticket, talked-about exhibits at Salvo 17, so contact him if you have something which might suit. A recent Salvo showstopper was LASSCO’s original cast-iron gothic balustrade from Westminster Bridge.
Regarding pitch prices, Kay says: “Readers of Joan’s Fairs & Markets column who mention ATG when booking before the end of January will receive a discount which varies from £102 off a small pitch to £372 off the biggest pitch – normally £1500. Call us on 01227 500485 to book.”
Exhibitor numbers are capped at 90 at Salvo 17, which takes place as usual at Fawley Hill, near Henley-on-Thames, with this year’s event on Friday, June 23 (trade day), and Saturday and Sunday, June 24-25.
