Come and see the H&A team as we help the Bath Decorative Fair celebrate 25 years

Much loved among the antiques hunting crowd, the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair hits its 25th birthday this year. Originally set up by Bath dealer Robin Coleman, it has become a well-known and well-attended event famed for a gorgeous selection of decorative antiques (and the occasional adorable pup!).

Now run by Sue Ede of Cooper Events (also responsible for the annual Buxton Antiques Fair, the Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques & Fine Art Fair and the Tatton Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair), she has kept the Bath Decorative Fair separate from the Cooper Events stable, such is its loyal following.

Last time we were there we met readers picking up a medley of lovely bits from 1930s Grindley tea bowls to fairground ride chickens (for happy buyer Richard Fowler’s dining room, left).

With dealers coming from as far afield as Sweden and Perthshire, and a strong contingent of ‘Young Guns’ traders, we’re excited to see what intriguing finds the 25th anniversary year will offer.

H&A will have a stand for the duration of the fair selling our own bits and pieces as well as subscriptions and copies of the new April issue. Do drop by and show us what you’ve discovered!

The 25th Bath Decorative Antiques Fair, The Pavilion, Bath, runs on 6th March (trade only) and from 7th until 9th March, 11am-5pm. Admission £3.
