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 one of the largest high quality fully stand fitted decorative antiques fairs in Yorkshire, making it a must visit event for any antiques or interior design 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.
