Shown here at last year’s Bayfield Hall antiques fair are dealers Matthew Higham, left, Roderick Haigh, centre, and, right, fair organiser Mal Cannell, who deals in antiques, rugs and kilims. Cannell said: “Here are three old dealers with 140 years of experience between them. It must have been early because there is no sign of bottles on the table.”

It is based around Bayfield Hall Antiques at The Old Stables, a small antiques centre which has been trading for 10 years.

Dealer Mal Cannell, the fair’s organiser, said: “The fair will again take place in the glorious north Norfolk Glaven Valley between Holt and Blakeney.

“The beautiful parkland and imposing hall are the perfect backdrop and regular dealers will be joined by some 30 colleagues from around East Anglia.

“The regular dealers, who specialise in English and Continental antiques and design, are well known in the trade and there will be some great fresh stock revealed on the day. Plenty for trade and public alike.”
