We are delighted to welcome Continuity Fairs to the Yorkshire Event Centre for 2018.  YEC will be hosting the new Yorkshire antiques fair in Harrogate.

There are 3 fantastic antique fairs planned for 2018.

The 3 fairs will attract visitors across Harrogate and Yorkshire.  The first Great Yorkshire Antiques Fair will be held Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th March with additional shows in June & October.

This will be the largest Antique Home & Vintage Fair in the North with up to 400 stands displaying a large selection of vintage items and collectibles.  The fair will be held across both internal exhibition halls.  Premium antiques on sale in the main hall & a separate table top section offering rare finds and exciting treasures in hall 2.  From jewellery to furniture, porcelain to china, clocks to collectibles.  The Yorkshire Antiques Fair promises a fabulous range of antiques to suit every budget.

BBC Bargain Hunt to film at the YEC.

The October fair (Saturday 6 – Sunday 7) will bring the BBC to Harrogate.  An episode of Bargain Hunt will be filmed across both days of the antiques fair.  Allowing visitors to come and watch the experts in action whilst hunting out their own bargains!

Nick Bayliss of Continuity Fairs gives us an insight into some of the highlights;

“We will have the Swiss Post Bike which dates back to 1943 and would bring post to the front line. It has still got all the original leather bags on it – including a place for a pistol to go behind the seat”

“Eugene the 1920s butler figure is with Bates Antiques of Oxford and is always a talking point for them when they’re at shows. There will also be plenty of country furniture as this is particularly popular in Harrogate and Yorkshire – you won’t be disappointed!”
