February sees 30 years' of Penman Antiques Fairs
at the Racecourse.  Celebrations are being planned....

Chester Antiques Fair
 offers around 40 stands of antiques and fine art extending over 3 floors of the County Grandstand.

The Fair is always busiest in the morning, but quieter pm. If you want to visit in relative peace, do consider arriving after 1pm!

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!

Established in 1989 by Penmans, the Fair is a twice yearly event, offering a good day out, with all the trimmings...      

 October's Fair will be open
Friday to Sunday  10.30am - 5pm

We will consolidate into 3 days' open.

Chester Antiques Fair will retain 95% of its regular exhibitors, and indeed add some fresh blood,
 as some exhibitors prefer a 3-day fair -
cutting down on accommodation costs etc

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.
