It runs this year as an outdoors-only event on Saturday July 31 and Sunday August 1.
Bayliss, director of Continuity Fairs, added: “The course is in a lovely setting with the visitors’ car park set above it so it will be great to be able to look down on the fair spread out below.
I’m expecting around 200-plus standholders over that weekend.” The Cheltenham Festival of Antiques is the seventh location for the organisers’ fairs which are spread across the UK including Wales.
If you plan to make an antiques trip of it, seven miles outside Cheltenham is the market town of Winchcombe with the Winchcombe Antiques Centre, Newsum Antiques and Prichard Antiques. From Newsum Antiques comes this selection of Swedish glass (above) from 1968 to 1972 by designer PO Strom at prices from £85 to £220.
