ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Eagerly awaited by both exhibitors and visitors, the rescheduled annual Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair is due to return to the grounds of the National Trust’s Petworth House from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 September 2020. The highly regarded flagship fair opens in The Marquee, Petworth Park, Petworth, West Sussex and now in its 6th year is firmly established as part of Petworth’s social diary.

Fair organiser, Ingrid Nilson of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited told ANF: “We are adhering to the government’s guidelines for the safety of all. There are some changes to the usual layout, which won’t detract from viewing the magnificent selection of fine art and antiques.  There will be a track and trace system in place; allowances for social distancing; the wearing of face coverings will be mandatory inside the marquee and there will be hand sanitisers for everyone’s use.  Some queuing will be inevitable and a one-way system may operate within the fair at busier times. The catering has been brought outside to the front of the marquee, so visitors can relax, if they wish, whilst awaiting their turn to enter the marquee.

This is a major leap of faith for all of us involved in the planning and execution of this fair but with investment already committed and mindful of how many of our contractors are relying on the event - some on a business survival basis, we took the decision to commit and in pioneer spirit feel that the show must go on - subject to no further government directives in the meantime.  We are well aware that the eyes of the trade are upon us!

Great care has been taken to ensure that alterations will not detract from expectations of an exciting day out for interior design enthusiasts, collectors and loyal visitors who return year on year. There will be a truly enthusiastic band of antique dealers to greet all comers, glad to be back interacting with the public and showing an array of enticing antiques, decorative accessories and fine art, all for sale from a few hundred pounds upwards."

As the Goodwood Revival is not taking place on the same dates nearby for 2020, the fair will be embracing a celebratory theme and encouraging visitors to come along in their vintage cars, dressed for the occasion, on the Sunday, the final day of the fair, if they wish.  Obviously, this will be weather permitting for the open top vehicles!
