It runs from September 21-23 and hosts 35 dealers from across the UK, offering anything from furniture and silver to maps and porcelain.

Set in one of North Yorkshire’s historic houses and estates, the event is a chance to explore the Duncombe family’s home and garden, first designed by Yorkshire gentleman architect William Wakefield in 1713, which is otherwise no longer open to the public.

Exhibitors show their selection of antiques and fine art in the servant’s quarters, and, after some shopping, visitors are invited to view the main staterooms and second floor of the building.

This is the second of the fair’s biannual stagings. It features free parking outside the house and a tearoom during opening times.
