“It’s back to the Wetherby they love”, said Jaguar Fairs’ Alan Cartwright of the standholders and visitors he will welcome back to the North Yorkshire town.

The racecourse is the venue for his two-day antiques and vintage fair on Saturday and Sunday, June 26-27.

Run for 22 years, this event always draws large crowds. Cartwright added: “We’re at a 300-stall capacity in June, all loyal exhibitors, and we’ve picked up some who used to stand at Continuity Fairs’ Harrogate event which is not running this year.”

Jaguar Fairs celebrated its 25th year in the business last year with the launch of Racecourse Tuesday in January at Nottingham Racecourse, planned to run five times annually to hit the many trade buyers in the area for IACF Newark and Swallow Fairs at Lincoln.

Successive lockdowns put paid to that but Racecourse Tuesdays return with two autumn dates, while the organiser is back in Derby at the Conference Centre on Saturday and Sunday, July 24-25.
