IACF (International Antiques & Collectors Fairs), the UK’s largest fair organiser, has unveiled an exciting new event entitled the ‘Celebration’ of Antiques at Stoneleigh Exhibition Centre in Warwickshire. The event is scheduled to take place during both the Easter weekend of March 29-3, 2024, and on October 25-26, 2024, at the venue nestled in the heart of the UK.
IACF said that the ‘Celebration’ of Antiques at Stoneleigh promises to redefine the antique fair experience for visitors and traders. The organisers are embracing a host of innovative changes to the traditional format seen at Stoneleigh, promising a dynamic fusion of indoor and outdoor stalls, along with a significant departure from the usual parking arrangements at the venue.
Central to the new experience is the careful balance between intimacy and convenience that the event’s layout offers. Combining both indoor and outdoor stalls, visitors will be able to explore and shop in a refreshing and innovative setting. This strategic design transformation aims to create a more engaging and interactive environment, fostering a sense of discovery for collectors.
Equally important, the parking arrangements have undergone a notable transformation, now conveniently situated within the venue premises. This shift ensures seamless access for attendees and minimises any potential inconveniences.
“We’re thrilled to bring a fresh perspective to the realm of antiques with the ‘Celebration’ of Antiques at Stoneleigh,” said Will Thomas, Director of IACF. “This event embodies a genuine celebration of history, craftsmanship, and the exhilaration of uncovering unique treasures. With a lineup featuring exceptional dealers, captivating antique talks, live music, and on-site entertainment, attendees can anticipate an immersive experience tailored to diverse interests.”
