The Fair showcases not only locally sourced items but a range of jewellery, porcelain, prints, furniture and collectables from around the world.

This year will introduce for the first time the Vintage Bridal Exhibition, displaying a selection of vintage wedding gowns and highlighting the evolution of the wedding dress over the years and the influence of past eras on present day design.
