THE CHELSEA ANTIQUES FAIR
|WELCOME TO THE CHELSEA ANTIQUES FAIR:|
The famous Chelsea Antiques Fair celebrates 70 years as the UK’s longest-running antiques fair in 2021. New owners of the fair, the prestigious 2Covet marketplace, a destination site which has entranced connoisseurs and collectors since its launch, have created a buzz of excitement around this perfectly located event in the heart of London's Chelsea. Following the story with keen interest, an elite line up of exhibitors across a number of specialties have signed up to show in September.
Sophie Wood, ex LAPADA Antiques & Fine Art Fair, is fair organiser, who tells ANF: "The highly-respected dealers Charles Wallrock and Steve Sly with Fair Director Zara Rowe have acquired the fair from Caroline Penman who, after organising some 65 Chelsea fairs, has decided it was time to hand over the baton to the next generation. Now, reinforced by the foundations of the 2Covet online marketplace, we will be relaunching the fair and adding a significant number of new dealers to the list of exhibitors. It’s very exciting to take the fair forward, but above all we promise visitors there will be a superb display of exhibits coming to the Chelsea Old Town Hall this September."
With a strong assembly of exhibitors the fair seeks to hark back to its roots in the 1960s and 70s when Chelsea Antiques Fair on the fashionable King’s Road was a special social occasion attracting the most discerning art and antiques afficionados from across London and the south of England.
