Featured in the popular book ‘1,000 Things To Do Before You Die’ IACF’s flagship event Newark is a must visit event. Holding the crown of the largest antique fairs in Europe you will not believe your eyes! Hot on Newark’s heels is our Ardingly antiques market with hundreds of both outside and inside stallholders; it is by far the largest fair in the South of England.
Our fairs are mostly on weekdays as it gives shop owners a chance to visit the fairs and purchase their stock, so as you can imagine it can be a great place to find a bargain! Shepton Mallet however is a weekend fair and also the largest antiques, vintage and collectors fair in the West Country with over 600 stands of quality antiques.
Swinderby and Newbury make up IACF’s One-Day-Monday antique fairs. The early bird catches the worm at these shows, so be sure to get there as early as you can. Swinderby is located on an old World War II runway with hundreds of outside only dealers - be sure to take your walking boots. Our One-Day-Monday Newbury antiques fair is located at the Newbury Racecourse just off the M4 and also benefits from it’s own railway station (Newbury Racecourse Station). With over 100 inside and up to 200 outside dealers Newbury is a great way to spend a Monday.
IACF also own and operate LoveAntiques.com which displays 'Genuine Antiques From Trusted Dealers'.
