Chelsea no 58

The Chelsea Antiques Fair, which opened this week and continues until March 24, is the 58th consecutive fair to be held at the Old Town Hall in Kings Road, SW3.

There are 40 exhibitors, many of them with long associations with the twice-a-year event.


The Chelsea Antiques Fair, which started in 1950, is still going strong at the Old Town Hall. Part of Penman Antiques Fairs and now staged once a year, the latest edition ran from March 15-19.
