Gary is GNB Fairs, which holds antiques, vintage and collectors’ events in Essex, Suffolk, Sussex and now in Kent, with the addition of the Dover Cruise Terminal 1 as a venue.

As EA Fairs Emma organises an antiques and collectors’ fair five times a year at the Dunston Hall Hotel, an Elizabethan-style mansion near Norwich set in 150 acres of grounds.

Sheridan senior launched his triannual Dover event in March, with the next on Sunday, October 14.

He said: “The fair has proved popular with both exhibitors and buyers. We have averaged between 50-60 stalls and 10 large drive-in pitches and I expect the same again this month, including a dealer from France and one based in Holland.

“The dealers particularly like being able to drive into the building to unload and then park inside.”

The cruise terminal receives 200,000 annual passengers from its 20 annual cruise lines and is located 10 minutes from the ferry terminal.

The listed building was built in 1914 as a boat-train terminal and was used throughout the First World War to receive injured troops. It closed in 1994, the track was filled in and the facility renamed Dover Cruise Terminal 1.
