The event will run on Saturday and Sunday, October 27-28, having been postponed twice since the proposed date of Easter.

Its Grade II-listed venue has not been in use since 2015 due to major remedial works, with “costs having risen from £900,000 to £5m”, said fair organiser Duncan Pembroke.

He took over the long-standing event at the beginning of this year.

Pembroke added: “I am very much looking forward to the fair. We have 100 standholders booked and are expecting a busy launch weekend meeting up with long-returning customers.”
