News about events and dates for 2019

18th December 2018

As we prepare to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome all that 2019 has to offer, we are delighted to launch our dates for the new year. 2019 will be bringing with it some exciting changes, most notably the new-format Lincoln Antiques & Home Show and a new location for the Decorative Home & Salvage Show, resulting in six annual salvage shows. We will continue to run the hugely popular Sunday Vintage Flea Market at the Lincolnshire Showground, however we’ve not secured suitable dates for the Stoneleigh Antiques Market, so this will no longer run. The new calendar has been devised to focus attention where there is most demand, to play to our strengths as event organisers and to offer the best exhibitor and visitor experience possible.

Antiques & Home Show

Lincoln Show

We’ve retained all the best elements of the previous format, whilst bringing in changes to make this a refreshed and vibrant show for both buyer and seller. The show will continue to take place at the easy to access Lincolnshire Showground, just outside Lincoln - a venue with excellent facilities including free parking, on-site catering and a licensed bar. The layout will change slightly, closing the gap between The Epic Centre and The Avenues with easily accessible shopping arcades and outdoor stalls linking these two areas. With the exception of an August weekend event, the show will be a one-day affair, taking place on one Wednesday during the months of April, May, October and December.

Decorative Home & Salvage Show

Decorative Home Salvage Show Cropped

These carefully curated boutique shows have gone from strength to strength over the years, however there is an ever-present demand for a larger geographic reach. In response to this we’ve added a new event in Welland, a stunning Worcestershire location close to Malvern with views of the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to sit alongside Ripley Castle, Cheshire Showground and Loseley Park. Located close to the M5 between Bristol and Birmingham, the site is ideally located for visitors from the South West, the Midlands, the Cotswolds and Wales. The show will follow the same format as the existing Decorative Home & Salvage Shows, comprising a mix of shopping arcades and open stands with plenty of space to browse stock, a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, free parking, on-site catering and a licensed bar. All salvage shows will remain as three-day events.

General event information can be found here.

Ripley Friday 10th – Sunday 12 May & Friday 6th – Sunday 8th September

Vintage Flea Market

Vintage Flea

The Vintage Flea Market, which continues to be supported by a loyal roster of traders and an enthusiastic following of visitors of all ages, will continue with the same popular format in 2019. The market offers up the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning, whatever your budget, if you love bagging a bargain, rummaging for bric-a-brac or hunting down cool vintage items and classic collectables. The event will continue to offer on-site catering and free parking.
