The 2016 Burford Antiques Fair at Burford School, Oxfordshire will took place over the weekend of 30th and 31st July 2016. The Fair was well received by both visitors and exhibitors, with a happy atmosphere prevailing. We are awaiting the end of the School Holidays before we can negotiate a date 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 are booked to exhibit at this affordable event where quality and balance will be maintained. The fair is run in conjunction with the well known Antiques Fairs logistics company, Casemate, who will be the major contractor.
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 in 2017 if this would be more suitable to demand.
Easy Parking. Simple Catering. Friendly Dealers.
The 2017 Fair Date has not yet been finalised.
The School is awaiting funding confirmation for an extensive refurbishment project, planned for summer 2017. Until this is forthcoming (or refused) they are holding many dates for this work to be carried out.
2016 Exhibitors included: A.J. Art, S & J Abbott Ceramics Plus, Amelie & Melanie Japanese Antiques, Antiquarium, Aquila Fine Art, Bank House, Billingbear Fine Art, Carlton Clocks, Dansk Silver, Diamonds 4 You, Drove House Antiques, Emma Duveen, Fox House Antiques, Genena's Antique Dolls, W R Harvey Antiques, Jeanette Hayhurst, Holland Murray, Peter Jeffs, Sue Johnson, Jupiter Antiques, Tony Knott, Lakes Boxes, Brian MacDonald Carpets, Newsum Antiques, Not wanted on Voyage, Parkside Antiques, Petersfield Books, Phoenix Fine Art, Plaza, Roxwell Antiques, Schredds of London, David Scriven, Antiques Twenty Four.
There are many local attractions to enjoy alongside the Fair. Burford Garden Centre must be one of the best of its kind (with an antiques section and an excellent cafe too), and the picturesque town of Burford, "Gateway to the Cotswolds" offers a wonderful array of shops, galleries and pubs. The splendours of Blenheim Palace and pretty Woodstock village are only 10 minutes North of Burford
