The Northern Antiques Fair is a prestigious fine art show taking place in the UK. It is run by The Antiques Dealers Fairs Limited, which also runs two other UK-based fairs: the Mayfair Antiques and Fine Art Fair and the Petworth Park Antiques and Fine Art Fair. This show takes place just once a year in the autumn and has been a staple of the British antiquing calendar since 1951, which makes it the longest-running fair of its kind taking place in the north of England.

Each year, around 40 different professional dealers create exhibits at The Northern Antiques Fair. These dealers are mainly drawn from the British Antique Dealers Association and LAPADA, which guarantees that the standard of each exhibit is extremely high. This fair is a great opportunity for dealers from the north of England to show the antiquing world what they have to offer and such is the reputation of the event by now that dealers travel from all around the country in order to take part. This allows for a broad range of disciplines and styles to be showcased, from the ancient to the contemporary.

The Northern Antiques Fair is designed to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. As such, pieces go on sale from £50 all the way up to six figure items. The majority of the visitors to this fair are individuals seeking something special for their homes and collectors with interests in specific pieces or eras. Many visitors attend the fair year after year and take the opportunity to catch up with their favorite dealers. This creates a welcoming, warm atmosphere at the event and it is therefore a great place for those beginning their collections to forge connections as well as pick up a special, coveted item.

A wonderfully broad range of items is exhibited at The Northern Antiques Fair. Visitors can expect to see jewelry, paintings, watercolors, rugs, clocks, glass, sculptures, ceramics, and more. It is easy to see why so many patrons return year after year.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
