Dedicated to the genre and held at one of its flagship properties, Eltham Palace, this biannual fair runs in the medieval Great Hall as well as an outside marquee.

Now renowned as the home of Virginia and Stephen Courtauld, this was built in the 1930s as a hymn to the opulence of the Art Deco style.

English Heritage’s Georgina Hallett said: “Eltham Palace’s popular Art Deco Fair is a unique opportunity to experience the decadence of the 1930s in the stunning surroundings of what is a true Art Deco gem.

“A variety of traders sell a range of Art Deco pieces, from jewellery, hats and accessories to furniture, ceramics, glassware and art.”

Exhibitors in September include Stephen Hazell-Smith with Swedish glass, Jane Mason of Shine On Design and Gazelles with the perennially desirable Deco furniture, and Dave Hornik Unger will be turning on the lights of his Deco lamps.
