If lifting of the third phase goes as planned on May 17, Cooper Events’ 2021 programme will start with The Annual Buxton Antiques Fair on May 20-23, the 55th edition of this event.

Cooper Events owner Sue Ede said: “The Buxton fair is traditionally one of the most important events of its kind with more than 45 exhibitors.

“Already demand for stands has been very strong and we have just a small handful remaining. After the last 12 months, it promises to be a truly celebratory event for all of us. Hospitality is scheduled to reopen on May 17 and our exhibitors will have the usual range of accommodation in Buxton and the Peak District.”

The schedule for the rest of the year includes The Pavilions of Harrogate Decorative Antiques & Art Fair, June 11-13 (rescheduled from April) and The Cotswolds Decorative Antiques & Art Fair, August 13-15. An October return is scheduled for The Chester Decorative, Antiques & Fine Art Fair, although dates have yet to be fixed. Another Harrogate fair is planned for October 29-31.

The last fair held by Cooper Events was The Bath Decorative Antiques Fair in March 2020. The next Bath event is scheduled for October 21-24.
