Historic Hall to hold antiques fair
People looking to buy antiques are expected to flock to Himley Hall and Park for a series of antiques and collectors fairs starting Sunday 21 July.
The Earl of Dudley’s former residence will host the event after a hiatus of nearly three decades.
Over fifty traders have already booked stands at the event, running from 10am to 4pm, which is the first of a string of such fairs booked at Himley over the next 18 months.
Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member responsible for halls, said:
Himley Hall is a beautiful 18th century building that is set amongst 180 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland, it’s the perfect venue for an antiques fair such as this one.
People visiting will also be welcome to take a look at the park grounds and enjoy refreshments at our popular coffee lounge.
Fairs are also confirmed for Sunday 15 September and Sunday 24 November. There is an entrance fee of £2 for adults and under 16s go in for free.
Paul Rowson of Antiques at Events said:
We have been working behind the scenes for some time now to try and bring these once popular events back to Himley Hall.
We are looking forward to the first fair and have booked them in around the third Sunday of every other month until the end of 2020.
