This B2B Events fair is held at the Three Counties Showground against the fine backdrop of the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, as pictured above at a recent fair. One of the most popular events on the circuit, this monthly fair is held nine times a year, including over three bank holiday Mondays when visitor numbers creep up to over 7000.

The next ‘Malvern flea’, as the organisers call it, is on Sunday, July 22. All 300 inside stalls are booked and if the weather holds outside pitches can reach 400-plus stalls.

B2B director Helen Martin said: “It’s been a slow start to the year, when normally we are fully booked very quickly with waiting lists for the Malvern flea. But it’s all picked up now with a bumper crop of buyers and sellers.

“We get a good level of trade at this event including dealers up from London plus healthy interest from foreign buyers.”
