The 1st Penman Burford Antiques Fair at Burford School, Oxfordshire took place at the end of July 2016. The Fair was well received by both visitors and exhibitors, with a happy atmosphere prevailing. We are delighted to announce the same weekend has been booked for 2017.
Located ideally at the gateway to the Cotswolds just a few minutes walk from the bustling but highly picturesque centre of Burford, the fair will take place in two halls either side of the school’s Art Deco façade. Some 34 dealers can show at this affordable event where quality and balance will be maintained. The fair is run using standfitting etc supplied by the well known Antiques Fairs logistics company, Casemate.
Burford School hosted many Antiques and Ceramics Fairs in the past, run by various organisers - but these have now lapsed, and as Burford was a popular venue, situated so centrally, Penmans have filled the vacancy. The School and local visitors are used to a two day event, so this will continue, though we are open to making it a 3-day event eventually, if this would be more suitable to demand.
There are many local attractions to enjoy in the area - Burford Garden Centre (the best for many miles with an antiques section & excellent cafe) Blenheim Palace is just 10 miles away.
Easy Parking. Simple Catering. Friendly Dealers.
The 2017 Fair will be held on July 29 / 30.
The date only became available at the end of March, so bookings are only just starting. We are delighted to have the same formula and date as last year, and anticipate most of the same exhibitors.
The School was awaiting funding confirmation for an extensive refurbishment project, planned for summer 2017. However, they have now released the weekend of 29-30 July for us, just as in 2016. So we are pleased to be able to move forward!
