It now runs from Thursday, May 14 – Monday, May 18, a change to its traditional Tuesday to Sunday format.

Organiser Jane Juran says: “The movable feast of Easter has in the past sometimes presented a challenge to spring fair exhibitors with school-age children and grandchildren. Moving the event to May should finally banish this issue once and for all, as well as allowing plenty of time for dealers to re-stock after January.”

The fair continues to take place in the Battersea Evolution marquee.

Running October 1-6, the autumn edition of the event hosts 163 exhibitors. The winter edition of the thrice-annual fair will also return as normal in January.
