The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair is coming back to Petworth Park in 2020. A feast for interior design enthusiasts, collectors and visitors looking for an entertaining day out.

Organised by The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited, the fair is held in a purpose-built marquee in the grounds of Petworth Park. 

The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair features over 50 exhibitors from around the country, all bringing their finest wares.

A wide range will be available to browse and buy: the finest period furniture, jewellery, paintings, silver, sculpture, lighting, vintage watches, clocks, ceramics, glass, including art pieces, and other works of art form the ancient to the contemporary. The majority of the exhibitors are members of the UK's two leading associations for professional art and antique dealers - BADA and LAPADA The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers.

The fair hosts an eclectic mix of dealers offering a wide selection of some of the best decorative arts, including Petworth-based businesses. Augustus Brandt creates an eye-catching and decorative stand reflecting the feel of the Petworth showrooms. Bringing refined, carefully selected and curated pieces, the interesting selection would define and complete any home, be it bronzes, an oversized glass vase or oil paintings and textiles to intricate works of Dutch marquetry and grandiose Regency furniture. 

The collaboration of five dealers representing Petworth Antiques Market is squirreling away stock to create an airy, exciting, fun and enticing stand. “Its early days to know exactly how the stand will look but excitement is high,” said Kathryn Mandry of Petworth Antiques Market.

The fair raises funds for the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and is supported by the National Trust, Brilliant Gin, Hennings Wine, Anderson Rowntree Solicitors, First Class Holidays, Petworth Antiques And Decorative Arts association and Petworth Business Association
