KEEPING UP THE MOMENTUM AT PENMAN FAIRS
Penman Fairs are following their recent new event at Firle House in Sussex with another new event this time in the heart of the Cotswolds at Burford School which is known to fair goers for the Ceramics Fairs held for a number of years. Organisers are keen to secure a tried and tested venue and Caroline Penman will host the Burford Antiques Fair from 30-31 July 2016. The fair will take place in two halls either side of the school’s Art Deco façade. Some 34 dealers are booked to exhibit at this affordable event where quality and balance will be maintained and collectors will be pleased to see a good range of period ceramics from some of the former exhibitors at the Ceramics Fair.
