Britain’s Best Antiques Awards – the shortlist

06 February 2012Written by ATG Reporter

THE shortlist for Britain’s Best Antiques Awards is now in – the winners to be announced next month.

The new competition, which was run by Homes and Antiques magazine between early October and the end of November, invited the public to nominate their favourite antiques destinations.

There has been a clear winner in each of the five categories so the decision has been taken to award prizes solely on the number of votes casts. The campaign, designed to raise the profile of art and antiques in the United Kingdom is being backed by TV celebrity and champion of antiques Kirstie Allsopp who will announce the winners at the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair on March 8.
