Plenty of newcomers are appearing at the anticipated 70-stand event on July 29-30. These include Sophie North of Branching Out in Wingham, Kent.

Illustrious Industrious, whose bespoke recycled furniture and finishings is found on building sites across London and the south-east, should be a hit at the fair if their vintage Illy coffee drum floor lamp on stand on their Facebook page is anything to go by.

Amorosa’s Richard Walton will be selling vintage olive jars from Portugal and Spain. They join other regulars at the fair, including Linda North and Paul Drewett, who both also stand at the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair. ATG readers are offered the opportunity of a free six-metre pitch at the Knebworth fair.

Blagrove said: “Those interested should contact me via the website with a stock photo and their company name and phone number. I will host a draw to choose a winner on Saturday, July 1. I am also offering five pairs of free tickets for the value of £9.50 each which can be used on either day.”

There are a limited number number of free trade preview tickets for Friday, July 28, from 1-5pm but they must be booked by July 20. Contact the organisers to register.
