Harrogate Fairs

The spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire has a fine tradition of art of antiques fairs.

The Harrogate Antique Fair is a long-standing event that has been run by David and Louise Walker since the 1980s with many members of BADA and LAPADA among the exhibitors.

Other fairs include The Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques & Art Fair run by Cooper events and The Yorkshire Antiques and Art Fair run by Bowman Antiques Fairs and held at the Great Yorkshire Showground.
