Can BADA turn its undoubted class into a real success?
THE country’s longest established antiques association will display its finery from March 19-26 when the fourth British Antique Dealers’ Association Antiques Fair is held in a marquee in the grounds of the Duke of York’s headquarters, King’s Road, London.
The past three were held in mid- May but the association very wisely moved the fair to March as many members would be exhibiting at the June Olympia and Grosvenor House and a May slot asked too much of both exhibitors and buyers.
The BADA fair has kept to a March slot in the calendar ever since and stages its latest edition from March 14-21 at the Duke of York Square. See Dealer’s Diary, pp40-41.
