The Northern Antiques Fair takes place this week and runs from Thursday 19th through to Sunday 22nd of October. Ingrid Nilson the newly appointed director of the fair has been a supporter of the Chippendale Society and has again generously supplied Chippendale Society members with complimentary tickets – we hope that our members continue to support this longstanding and important fair.
Formerly named The Harrogate Art & Antique Fair, the event now proudly resumes its original name dating back to 1951. Held in association with BADA, the fair is supported by Knight Frank Harrogate, The Friends of the Mercer Art Gallery, The Barker Partnership, NFU Mutual Thirsk & York branches and Premium Harrogate Tipple. “It is very exciting to be involved in this venerable event, and I am looking forward to welcoming many regular, as well as new, visitors to the fair. It has so much to offer for both avid collectors and those just looking for an interesting piece to top off a design scheme. There is plenty to inspire and delight,” said Ingrid Nilson, Fair Director.
One of the Societies corporate members – TL Phelps Fine Furniture Restoration will be in attendance at the fair and the Mercer Art Gallery is holding free gallery talks on Thursday 19 & Friday 20 October at 2pm with the curator, Jane Sellars, to coincide with their current exhibition by Sheila Bownas.
The fair will take place in Hall M, Harrogate Convention Centre, Harrogate, North Yorkshire HG1 2SY
