Grade I-Listed Shaw House, an Elizabethan mansion set in parkland on the outskirts of Newbury is the setting for a French-style brocante in the grounds to be organised by Jackie Edwards, aka ACVR Events.

It takes place on Sunday, August 29, with around 40-plus dealers. The property is owned and managed by West Berkshire Council and the brocante came about following a proposal by ACVR to the council to hold an event in Newbury. More on this in a later issue.

The bi-monthly 40-dealer Wednesday antiques and collectables market at Lemon Quay in Truro has reopened and includes an event on Saturday, July 24.

These markets are ongoing from August to October and Bonhams’ Truro office will be offering valuations on some dates.

Kyre Park Antiques Barn is a collective of dealers in a tithe barn in the grounds of Kyre Park, near Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, and an antiques fair will be held here on Saturday, August 7.

IACF’s one-day Monday and two-day antiques and collectors’ markets held at Newbury Racecourse are not running at this venue for the rest of this year, but check out the website later for next year’s dates at the venue.
