The leading bi-annual European antique fair, the Festival of Antiques, is back and bigger than ever before. Renowned all over the world for its spectacular collection of antiques, collectables and fine art, the Festival of Antiques has expanded considerably since it was first launched in 1999, and this year’s festival is set to be the biggest yet.
This Easter, the 2-day event is back in Peterborough with over 2,000 stalls featuring everything from furniture to fine art, jewellery to ceramics and collectable stamps to quirky vintage toys. Spread across five indoor areas within four permanent buildings, as well as a growing number of trade marquees and acres of outdoor pitches, this huge event is the ultimate day out for antique collectors, home improvers and a full day of browsing collectables and preloved items.
The Festival of Antiques has grown from strength-to-strength over its 19-year history, and this doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon. The festival has a lengthy contract in place with the East of England Showground, so exhibitors and visitors can expect to experience many more festivals there for years to come.
Antique-enthusiasts from all over the world continue to flock to the event for the chance to hunt down rare antiquities, colourful curiosities and valuable vintage finds. It is no surprise that the Festival of Antiques continues to grow in popularity, as countless testimonies from previous stallholders and visitors express what a wonderful event it is.
Simon Evans, Director of Peterborough Festival of Antiques, said:
“We are delighted to be back for another year of the Festival of Antiques, and are overwhelmed with the ever increasing interest in the event, and in turn, the growth that has come with that. We’re proud to say we have more visitors from all over the world who continue to support the Festival of Antiques and with more exhibitors on board than ever before, there are sure to be countless incredible antiques and curiosities to be found at the event. It’s an absolute must-visit for collectors and antique-enthusiasts!”
