Lincoln 2019 re-launch

4th October 2018

Introducing an exciting new Lincoln Antiques and Home Show format for 2019 

At Arthur Swallow Fairs we pride ourselves on being a hands-on approachable team, listening to both stallholder and buyer feedback at all possible opportunities. We have taken your valuable feedback on board, made changes with this in mind and are delighted to present our new format for 2019.

Closing the gap

The combination of Lincoln and Newark creates a perfect opportunity for buyers and traders, particularly overseas traders, to attend two shows in one week. However, the gap between the two shows has been problematic for some, so we have removed this. From 2019, with the exception of the August weekend show, the Lincoln Antiques and Home Show will be
a one-day show taking place on the Wednesday. 

Lower rents/hire

This new formula will enable us to reduce stall rents and marquee hire. Download stall holder information (inclucing prices).

A good night's sleep

Stallholders will now be able to enter Lincolnshire Showground from 4pm on the Tuesday afternoon. Set-up can now be done the evening before, ready for when we open at 7am on Wednesday. Perfect for a good night's sleep before a busy day of trading. 

A new layout

The layout will change slightly, bringing the Epic Centre closer to the Avenue stalls. Instead of using Avenues 1, 2 & 3, we will be using Avenues 2, 3 & 4. We will also be offering low-cost shopping arcades linking the Epic Centre to the Avenue stalls. 

August weekend show

We have been repeatedly asked by members of the public for a weekend show, so from 2019 we are happy to announce that our August show will be held over Saturday and Sunday, with set-up on Friday afternoon. 

Shorter walks to and from the car park

Buyers will park in a new car park area around First Avenue. Vehicle collections will be made easier, with collection passes from the security gate from 8am. 

2019 show times

Trade buyer entry will be 7am -10am £15pp, public buyers are welcomed 10am – 4pm £5pp.
