Kathy Coen has organised the twice-monthly Hungerford Antiques and Fleamarket in Hungerford Town Hall for seven years. The next ones are on Sunday, July 11, and Sunday, July 25.
She is launching a second event in the Cotswolds town of Lechlade at the town’s memorial hall, rebuilt in 2018 after a fire in 2016.
The first antiques and vintage market here launches on Sunday, July 4, with the first Sunday of the month thereafter and Coen plans to run the two events in tandem.
Dealer David Steel of the Tree of Ages online antiques business has been in touch to say that the antiques fair he launched in 2017 at the Robert Denholm House in Nutfield, Surrey, is moving to a new location nearby.
The Stanhill Court Hotel in Charlwood is the setting for the first antiques fair in its new home and will run quarterly. The next is on Sunday, July 11.
Steel said: “We are looking at 40 stallholders initially which will increase to 50 and 60, post Covid restrictions.”
Maxine Stonehill of Pop-Up Vintage Fairs is very disappointed that her very popular annual event at Wilton’s Music Hall in the East End of London has had to be postponed for a year – to July 21, 2022.
She said: “It’s such a shame but the venue feel the fair won’t work with limited capacity and social distancing.”
Stonehill’s next vintage fair is at the Business Design Centre in Islington on September 25.
