Last May, The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited launched the first ever Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair which was voted a great success by both the visitors who came along and by the town of Petworth in West Sussex who benefitted from the extra buzz the event generated. Working with the National Trust again to ensure all visitors can make the most of everything on offer within the 700 acre park, the fair returns from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 May. With the backdrop of Petworth House and its 'Capability' Brown landscape, the location is quite spectacular. The purpose-built Marquee will be brimming with the finest antiques and art once again, when over 40 specialist dealers from around the country gather to show jewellery, ceramics, glass, contemporary and antique paintings and sculpture, town and country furniture, ancient fossils, silver, lighting, clocks, barometers, objets d'art and much more.
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is the fair's nominated charity again this year. A number of wildlife and animalier works are for sale from various exhibitors at the fair, including paintings by Shepherd's granddaughter, Emily Lamb. Savills and Anderson Rowntree are generously supporting the Fair.
Parking close to the Marquee is free for antiques fair visitors and ticket holders have complimentary access to Petworth House to see its magnificent art collection and its 'Capability' Brown 300th anniversary exhibition.
