Principality pioneer setting forth in old giant’s footsteps

21 January 2003Written by ATG Reporter

VETERAN organiser Donald Bayliss, who put together his first fair in the 1960s and now operates out of Ludlow as Continuity Fairs, is launching a new event in mid-Wales in the Spring.

The first International Antiques & Collectors Fair of Wales will be held over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 3 and 4 at The Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, with an additional autumn fixture at dates yet to be announced.

The showground has indoor space for up to 400 dealers, with some 500 pitches available outside; the indoor area will be part standfitted and part table top.

It is many years since this showground has been used for an antiques fair, the last organiser being another veteran of the game Geoff Whitaker, founder of Newark, the biggest showground fair of them all.
