BADA Fair

The BADA Fair is a major showcase of fine art, design and antiques taking place in London in the early spring each year. Stands are exclusive to members of the British Antique Dealers’ Association.

The art and antiques on display range from 16th century works of art to contemporary furniture, and all items are vetted to ensure quality and authenticity.
