Thursday to Sunday 10.30am - 5pm

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 now a twice yearly event, offering a good day out, with all the trimmings...

We have a group of Art Deco dealers refreshing the ground floor...
We welcome Shine On Design, from Sussex, with 1930s furniture and accessories - plus Love Deco with decorative pieces from the same era.  Joining them will be Gemma Redmond (previously on the first floor), with her Deco designer costume jewellery and ladies' accessories.

Traditionalist should make for the top floor, where early oak from Mike Melody, needlework and fruitwood furniture from Richard Midwinter can be found in rooms, along with fine 18th and 19th C formal furniture from W R Harvey and at the far end, a selection of furniture and accessories from Holland - brought by C S Moreton via his business in Perthshire.

While there, say Hello to Joy who runs Joy's Bistro Bar up there, offering good food and drink with a panoramic view of the whole Course (and fabulous sunsets too)

Jewellery is well represented on all 3 floors, with our usual selection of reliable, friendly jewellers, who are joined by Brieve Antiques, here only for the 2nd time, after a few years' gap.
