IACF ready for full show at East of England Arena in October

The Peterborough Festival of Antiques, one of the largest antiques and vintage markets in the UK, is coming to the East of England Arena on Friday 1st October & Saturday 2nd October, 2021. Organised by International Antiques & Collectors Fairs (IACF), the show is a long-standing favourite of dealers and collectors alike and has been held at the Arena since 1999.

IACF's Eve Oliver said the fair would be at full strength following pandemic editions of the event, and added, "dealers in collectables, vintage items and antiques rely on big fairs and markets for a significant proportion of their sales, and have been raring to get back to business. The Peterborough Festival of Antiques is almost certainly going to be the largest UK antiques market this year, and we're looking forward to crowds larger than we've all been used to recently."

Dean Rees, business development manager, East of England Arena, welcomed the return of this perennial event saying, "Not only is the Festival of Antiques hugely popular in the region, but the reputation it has won over the last two decades now draws in buyers and sellers from all over the country, and in non-pandemic times, the world. It's great for the Arena, and great for businesses locally too."
