Organisers of the fair, which takes place at Blenheim Palace, recorded a footfall of around 4350 visitors, a figure well up from last year. Several exhibitors, including 19th and 20th century British art specialist Sarah Colegrave and British pottery dealer John Howard, also reported it was their best CADA fair to date in terms of sales.

“Having taken over from John Howard to be director of the CADA fine art and antique fair it was going to be hard to better earlier fairs but I was delighted to see so many exhibitors selling and doing well,” said this year’s organiser Cathy Hunt. She added that visitors had come “from all corners of England, Scotland and Wales with many also from Europe and the US, including a significant number of interior designers”.

Howard said: ‘This is the best CADA Fair I have ever done sales-wise, with several new customers. I think the event looked better than it ever has and I’ve heard nothing but positive comments.”

The next CADA Fair will take place from April 19-22, 2018.
