Antique Fairs in the UK
All Fairs will go ahead, whatever the weather, in order to provide a place for people to carry on doing business all year round.
International Antiques & Collectors Fairs Ltd (iacf) are the organisers of the biggest and very best UK antique fairs.
For quality antiques in amazing quantity, look no further! With 34 antique fairs in seven convenient locations around the UK throughout the year, you never have to travel too far or wait too long to experience one of IACF’s superb vintage bonanzas.
Antiques and collectables, antique furniture, vintage clothing & fabrics, architectural salvage, reclamation or just something stylish for your home, iacf has it all! Attracting over 150,000 public and 60,000 trade buyers every year from all over the globe iacf fairs are a truly unique vintage shopping experience.
Featured in the popular book ‘1,000 Places To See 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 Fair with hundreds of stalls - both inside and out - it is by far the largest fair in the South of England.
Being largely trade events, IACF fairs are mostly held on weekdays, as this 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!
Peterborough's Festival of Antiques is a major exception to this rule. One of the country's largest Antiques events, it is held on a Friday and Saturday and is particularly popular with the antiques buying public. Another Friday and Saturday Fair is Shepton Mallet: the largest antiques, vintage and collectors fair in the West Country with over 600 stands of quality antiques hosted within four halls and numerous outside pitches and marquees.
IACF also own and operate LoveAntiques.com which displays genuine antiques from trusted dealers.
