The 2016 Burford Antiques Fair at Burford School, Oxfordshire 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 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 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 will be held on July 29 / 30.
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!

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
