Antiques at the Holt

Date: The next Antiques@TheHolt will take place over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November 2017. The dates for the Spring fair in 2018 have been confirmed as the 17th and 18th March, with November's dates provisionally set for 24th & 25th.

From 2017 the dates for Antiques@TheHolt will be regularised annually to the third weekend in March, and the last weekend in November.

Time: Doors open to the public at 10:00 am each day. The fair closes at 4:30 pm. Access to enable dealers to set up their stands will be from 7:00 am on both days, and there will be plenty of time after the event for packing away.

Official Opening: The second fair was officially opened on the Saturday morning by BBC TV's Charlie Ross. Read the Press Release, or find more on our extended page about CharlieRoss@TheHolt. We don't always have "celebrity endorsement", but it's nice when we do! As things currently stand, we do have another eminent antiquarian lined up to add a bit of sparkle to the opening day in November ...

Entry: There is an entry fee of £2 for adults, with no charge for accompanied children under the age of 16. Re-entry upon presentation of a valid ticket is free, and visitors attending both days will only be charged once. Add your email address to the ticket stub on leaving to enter our Prize Draw. See foot of page for full Terms & Conditions.

Trade Visitors: There will be dispensationary access to the fair for trade buyers between 09:00 and 10:00 on both days upon presentation of a business card. We respectfully ask visiting trade buyers not to request access before nine. Those arriving after ten will be required to pay the full entrance fee.

Attendance: Most dealers are present for both days of the fair, but a number (with commitments elsewhere) sometimes attend for one day only - either Saturday or Sunday. Some collectors may wish to view both days. Please view the Dealers page for further information.

Terms & Conditions: Standard entry to Antiques@TheHolt is £2 per head. However, re-entry to the fair to anyone returning on the Sunday (having paid for entry on the Saturday) will be free, upon presentation of a valid ticket. Each ticket will also permit entry to the Prize Draw, with winners drawn from the 'hat' to receive a variety of items. These will be on display at the Fair. To be eligible, an email address must be added to the ticket stub, or the visitor's ticket handed in to the organisers on leaving inclusive of an email address - required so that winners can be advised of their good fortune.
