In ATG No 2547 we briefly mentioned Love Fairs’ Antiques Festival to be held on the Georgian colonnaded Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday and Sunday, July 23-24.

An extra draw to this event will be The Pantiles Arcade in the Grade II-Listed Corn Exchange which opened last year.

Top-end antiques dealers trading in here – with more to come – include the well-known antiques expert Eric Knowles, dealing in decorative arts including art glass and ceramics and horologist Richard Price, a mainstay on the Antiques Roadshow for 40 years.

Royal Warrant holder Wilkinson sells lighting and chandeliers, dealers Jeroen Markies and David Hickmet supply Art Deco and Hope and Glory offers antique toys.
