ABOUT THIS VIRTUAL EXHIBITION:
 

Hemswell Antique Centres near Gainsborough in Lincolnshire - which boast Europe's largest choice of antiques and collectables - like all the bricks and mortar businesses in our industry, was forced to close its doors during March 2020 amid the mounting worldwide Coronavirus crisis.


But the company, which employs around 50 staff, stressed that it is continuing to trade via its website at Hemswell Antiques.  Hemswell is well placed to concentrate its business on the website to respond to the situation having invested heavily over the past 2 years so there is capacity for the increased amount of stock being uploaded daily by the team.


Robert Miller, Managing Director of Hemswell Antiques told ANF: "Unfortunately, as a business, we have no option but to close our site to visitors as it is our responsibility to be part of the national situation to stop the spread of this horrendous virus.


More than 350 dealers trade from the four buildings which comprise Hemswell Antique Centres on a former WW2 Bomber Command airfield. 


It is becoming a common theme across social media that business owners will be judged by their behaviour during this crisis and Robert is leading by example with very generous gesture in his message to his 350 exhibitors at Europe's largest antiques centre:


"With effect from April 1, I will be freezing all rents for two months after which we will review the situation. The Coronavirus advice continues to change daily and following the Government directive by Boris Johnson Hemswell Antique Centres closed with immediate effect on the morning of Tuesday March 24. Cafes in two of the buildings - Building 1 and The Guardroom - closed last week.


Our online business Hemswell Antiques will continue to operate as usual and members of the team will work in groups of no more than two people photographing, uploading stock to the website and then remotely assisting with enquiries, sales and deliveries which will be dealt with as soon as we are able."


Hemswell Antique Centres forms part of a sizable business estate from which a number of other independent antiques businesses also operate. Hemswell forms part of Antiques Week when the fairs at Newark, organised by IACF Ltd and Lincoln, organised by Arthur Swallow Fairs, are taking place.
