Brighton Roaring Twenties will be a big show, said Blagrove, running on the Hove Lawns on the seafront from August 21-23.

Maxine Stonehill and her Pop Up Vintage Fairs will be there with 50-plus dealers in the vintage village, and live bands play throughout the weekend.

Stallholders from Blagrove’s Knebworth Architectural Salvage and Vintage Fair, which runs this year on May 23-24, will be stalling out in Brighton too.

Roaring Twenties was planned on the back of the success of Bentleys Fairs’ Great Gatsby Fair launched in 2018 at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex.

That event runs this year on July 17-19.
