Burford Antiques Fair - 27th/28th July 2019
Burford School, A40 Cheltenham Road, Burford, Oxfordshire
This is a new venue for us but for the past three years has been run under the Penmans banner. They have kindly asked Two C's to take the Fair over and we are very pleased to do this having both helped at the Fair and stood as an Exhibitor. Ben was very involved with the set up, as was Barbara, who will continue to do the catering.
It will be held annually at roughly the same time in the summer school holidays and keep most of the same format. The Fair will still be held in the Assembly Hall and Gym but only the Assembly Hall will be stand fitted. The Gym will become table top stands only hopefully giving us a broader spectrum of Antiques and prices. This will make exhibiting more affordable and hopefully we can attract more trade and private buyers. The layout in the Gym will be changed so that we can make more use of the wall space. We will also be making some of the Reception Area into stand fitted space and will endeavour to make it look more attractive as you walk in, first impressions, etc. Entrance price will be reduced to £3.00. Advertising will be confined to more of the local area stretching out to Oxford, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Swindon and the towns of the Cotswold rather than country wide.
At this moment in time we have not been able to get final measurements for the Gym but we have a few stands available, all table top all 12' x 5', at £280.00 plus VAT in the Gym. All stand fitted space is fully booked unless we have cancellations and thrilled that not only do so many regulars want to stay with us but some of the Exhibitors from the first fair are returning. Sorry we cannot take any more Jewellers. Set up is on the Friday and Cabinets can be hired from Casemate.
Further information will be published as we know more.
