The Northern Antiques Fair 19-22 October 2017

An exciting change to the antiques fairs calendar for 2017 is The Northern Antiques Fair - formerly The Harrogate Art & Antique Fair - taking place from 19-22 October 2017. 

Now under new ownership and managed by expert fairs organiser, Ingrid Nilson, the event, held in association with BADA, has resumed its original name which dates back to 1951, and has undergone a facelift.  It is set to become a leading autumn fair in the north of England once again.

Taking place at the Harrogate Convention Centre, the fair will bring together 35 specialist dealers, displaying a mix of antiques, mid-century and contemporary pieces in the genres of fine furniture, fine art, jewellery and accessories, perfect for the design-savvy buyer in search of unique and one-off objects.
