Himley to host antiques fair
Himley Hall has confirmed the return of the ever-popular Antiques and Collector’s fair on Sunday 18 April.
More than 50 traders are booked for the event, where people can pick up unique antiques and collectables in the grounds of the beautiful eighteenth century hall.
The event will follow all the latest Covid guidelines and is exclusively outdoors.
The Himley Hall coffee shop hatch will also be open, serving light refreshments and hot drinks to take away.
Stuart Connelly, Head of culture, leisure and bereavement services, said
"Covid restrictions have prevented us from holding events such as this and we are delighted that the easing of restrictions mean we can now welcome the traders back to the hall grounds.
"As always we ask people to continue to be careful when visiting any of our parks. It’s vital that we continue to practice social distancing and good hand hygiene and people must stay at home and seek a test if they have any of the Covid-19 symptoms."
Paul Rowson, event organiser, said:
"We are so pleased to be able to return to this wonderful venue, Himley Hall lends itself perfectly as a backdrop to the antique fairs.
"The response we get from the public is always terrific with so many people not realising what a gem we have here on our doorstep.
"We have over 50 traders already booked for the next outdoor fair and more on a waiting list for when we are allowed indoors."
The event is open to the public from 9am to 4pm. There is a £2 entrance fee for adults, under 16s go free.
