Established over 25 years ago Hinchingbrooke House Antiques Fair has always enjoyed a loyal following of good quality traditional dealers but this past year or so has seen a real resurgence in the demand for space for dealers looking for something a bit special. Since taking over the fair 6 years ago Lomax Fairs have maintained the standard for quality and also made the fair one of the most affordable for dealers who can stand at a “decent traditional fair” for a very affordable price. Hinchingbrooke attracts a number of local dealers as well as many who travel long distances from Yorkshire, Somerset, Bristol , Wiltshire, London etc.. all who have established good business with the regular private visitors to the fair as well as the many trade buyers who come for fresh to the market stock.
This fair is slightly different than our usual in as much as it is not stand fitted. The grand rooms at Hinchingbrooke with their high ceilings, historic features and period furniture provide the perfect setting for a quality fair.
As with all Lomax Fairs the Hinchingbrooke House fairs are extensively advertised and well signposted to attract visitors from across the country . There is space for approximately 35-40 dealers Admission £3 TFWC. Open 10-4 Sat/Sun
