December 2015 - our sparkling new website!

We are very happy to introduce the sparkling new website for the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair and her new sister The Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair!

It will be the 27th Bath Decorative Antiques Fair in March 2016 and during the last 26 years many people have asked why there is only one event each year and now in 2016 we are delighted to confirm that Bath's sister event, the Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair will take place from 14-16 October 2016 at the Haynes International Motor Museum.

Read all about the new Bruton event here and learn why we chose this rather exceptional venue in Bruton, Somerset, a town which has attracted a real media buzz with so many celebrities and high profile businesses relocating to the area.

Bath has certainly evolved over the past 26 years and we have been extremely pleased with the response from exhibitors, trade and public since we bought the business 3 years ago.  Many of the original exhibitors from the 90s are still with us at the fair but we are delighted to welcome a number of younger exhibitors and those dealing in Mid Century design to offer our visitors an even wider range of antiques and design for the home and garden.

The new site has been designed to showcase both Bath and Bruton and has been a few months in the making but we are delighted with the finished article which has some new features:

  • Gallery - we have added lots of images from past fairs and will keep this up-dated with images from our exhibitors for 2016
  • Exhibitor listing - all our exhibitors now have a full listing with an image and links to their own website
  • Apply to exhibit - this will be really helpful in the office!
  • Free ticket download
  • News page - keep up to date with what we have planned for Bath and Bruton

Bath has always been a sociable event and has attracted a very loyal following and in talking about our visitors we coud not fail to mention the legendary dealer Mr Spencer Swaffer who has been first in the queue for 26 years!  He is shown here with one of the leading decorative dealers in Belgium, the charming Bie Baert.

We look forward to welcoming both trade and public in 2016!
