Countdown underway to world’s biggest postcard fair

There’s only a few days to go until the start of the world’s biggest postcard fair – at rural Shepton Mallet in Somerset.

Barrie Rollinson’s FestivalofCards 2017 is the largest and most-eagerly anticipated event for collectors of the year – certainly in Britain, and once again it is attracting a good number of overseas dealers.

The festival takes place at the Bath and West Showground on Friday February 24 and Saturday 25. Opening times are 10am-6pm on the first day and 9.30am-4pm on day two.

More than 130 dealers will be attending.

PPM will be there at stall P13, so why not come over and say hello. But the office will also be manned as usual during the show.

There will be a full report in the April PPM, including details of a change in month for the festival in 2018.
