Leading antiques and salvage fairs organisers, Arthur Swallow Fairs, has announced its revised events dates for summer 2020, following on from its Antiques & Salvage Market at the Cheshire Showground on June 27.
All of the upcoming fairs on the calendar will follow government guidelines to deliver safe events and will be asking exhibitors, visitors and staff to adhere to the social distancing. There will also be hand sanitiser stations placed throughout events and card payments are being encouraged, however visitors are being advised to bring cash as there are not cash machines on-site. Visitors are also being asked to come equipped with their own bags.
The calendar of fairs comprises:
Loseley Park Decorative Home & Salvage Show – 17-19 July
Lincoln Vintage Flea Market – 19 July (cancelled)
Cheshire Antiques & Salvage Market (new one-day market) – 25 July
Lincoln Antiques & Home Show – 12 August

Beale Park Decorative Home & Salvage Show – 28-30 August

Commenting on their June event, the organisers said, “The event was a roaring success. It saw 200 dealers dusting off their stock to a crowd of hungry buyers who weren’t in the least put off by intermittent torrential rain – never have so many people looked so happy in the rain! With an evident appetite for fairs/markets and lifted restrictions, it’s now full-steam-ahead for outdoor events. The ASFairs team have again taken the bull by the horns and worked overtime to produce a revised calendar of outdoor summer events.”
