Penman Fairs: Chester Antiques Show Fair

To request Complimentary E-Tickets for Penman Antiques Fairs, please tick all appropriate boxes and type your address below:


The next fair is planned for 
11th - 13th October (Fri-Sun)
County Grandstand, 
Chester Racecourse
, CH1 2LY

February's Fair was consolidated to 2 floors,
largely because of caution over Brexit,
as dealers' expectation of business before March 29th is very low!
However, although visitor numbers were down, sales were good at all levels.

Chester Antiques Fair
 offers a variety of stands of antiques,
fine art and jewellery in the County Grandstand.

The Fair is always busiest in the morning. If you want to visit in relative peace, do consider arriving in time for lunch in the fair before walking round.

Standards are high, and Vetting plays a significant part in maintaining quality, authenticity and correct informative labels. Many of the exhibitors are members of BADA  and / or LAPADA.

Acclaimed as the best of its kind in the North West,        
The venue, ambiance and catering are outstanding – and the City of Chester is full of beautiful architecture, shops, restaurants and hotels for a weekend away!


We are reviewing the situation for the October Fair, 
and will almost certainly re-launch
with a changed formula

After 30 years, its about time for a change!

Excellent catering in:

The Turf Restaurant
beside the main Entrance, offering a wide range of coffees,
lunches and teas, opening at 10am for pre-fair coffees.

Restaurant 1539
on the First Floor brings fine dining as an interlude
 in the middle of the Fair

The White Horse Bistro Pub
in the centre of the course has cosy log fires and
a very welcoming atmosphere.

Free Parking
Please show your ticket at the entrance
Disabled parking close to the Fair entrance,
or ask attendants for assistance.

The Fair was established by Penmans in 1989,
so we are now celebrating 30 years of Fairs, at first in February only, then October too.
