Rose Antiques Fairs York Racecourse Antiques, Decorative and Fine Art Fair 8 – 9 June 2018

York Racecourse Antiques Decorative and Fine Art Fair – Entry £5

Rose Antiques Fairs Ltd was established to provide York with an annual high quality, dealer led antiques fair.  Our first fair was held at The University of York in June 2015, and we moved to York Racecourse (Postcode YO23 1EX) in 2016 to allow the fair to double in size. Since then the fair has grown to become the largest high quality fully stand fitted fair in Yorkshire, making it a must visit event for any antiques enthusiast.

The next fair will be held at York Racecourse on Friday 8th – Saturday 9th June 2018. Spread over two floors, there will be an extensive collection of antiques, fine art and decorative wares from the medieval to the modern day.

The fair will be a real day out, and will host a selling exhibition of Blue John jewellery by Treakcliff Cavern, Castleton, Derbyshire, along with a series of lectures. Check the website for the full program and times.

The Fair will open at 10am and close at 5pm on both the Friday and the Saturday.

Entrance is £5 per person

There is ample free parking at the venue.

Treak Cliff Cavern

View of Treak Cliff Cavern

Treak Cliff Cavern is one of only two Blue John mines in the world. Both mines are located beneath Treak Cliff Hill Castleton, Derbyshire, but Treak Cliff Cavern is the older of the two having been established sometime between 1745 and 1750.

Into the Mine at Treak Cliff Cavern

Blue John is semi-precious fluorospar containing yellow purple and blue bands and has been worked for centuries to produce decorative wares and architectural structures including vases and columns, examples of which can be found in the finest stately homes across the UK including Chatsworth and Buckingham Palace.

The original mine closed in 1926, but eventually came under the control of the Harrison family in 1945 who have since developed the mine as a source of Blue John jewellery rock for the production of ornamental pieces.
