Antiques @ The Holt
Oxfordshire premier bi-annual Antiques & Collectors’ Fair is held at The Holt hotel every third weekend in March and the last weekend in November.
First staged in 2013, Antiques@TheHolt has become established as one of the most popular and prestigious fairs of its kind in the area, and demand for space is such that only top dealers are now invited to 'stand' at The Holt.
Occupying most of the hotel's newly refurbished function rooms; the Cherwell Suite, Aston Room and Barton Room, every dealer is offered a generous pitch area – typically twice the size of those seen at other similar fairs. Most return time and again, and regulars will often hold back choice items so that the selection of antiques and collectables on display is of the highest quality, but always with something to suit every taste and every pocket.
It's never possible to predict exactly what you might find on a visit to the fair, but there's sure to be a wide range of superior items, including silver, porcelain, paintings & prints, furniture, glass, jewellery, maps, bronzes & figurines, pottery & ceramics, postcards, books, clocks, brass & metalwares, boxes & treen – as well as all manner of curios & collectables. There's sure to be something for everyone!
The doors open at 10:00 each morning, and the fair runs through to 4:30 in the afternoon. Visitors can also take full advantage of all the hotel's facilities, and one of the most popular culinary attractions for the dealers is the excellent Buffet Breakfast! Visitors can also break their tour of the fair by enjoying a drink in the bar, the popular Sunday Carvery, or Afternoon Tea.
Entrance to the fair is £2 (which includes optional participation in a prize draw) with accompanied children under 12 free. There's plenty of free parking, of course.
