ARTHUR Swallow Fairs, organisers of the giant antiques and collectors’ event at the Lincolnshire Showground, will launch two new fairs this year.
They plan a monthly event at Donington Park and a specialist fair for restoration and architectural salvage at the Great Yorkshire Showground, near Harrogate.
The first event at Donington Park in Derby is scheduled for Tuesday, August 24, with follow-up events on September 21 and October 19.
There will be no admission fee for buyers.
The Home Restoration and Salvage Show – which will inevitably be compared to the Salvo Fair at Knebworth (June 25-27) – is a two-day fair on the weekend of September 11-12. Admission will be £5 on each day.
The next event at the Lincolnshire Showground will be on June 8-9.
More details will appear in a future issue.
