Shepton Mallet – the world’s biggest postcard fair is here at last!

Shepton Mallet – which hosts what is thought to be the world’s biggest postcard fair – gets under way tomorrow (March 22.

The two-day Festival of Cards 2019 is again being held at the Bath and West Showground in Somerset (postcode BA4 6QN).

Nearly 130 dealers from Britain and overseas, including Europe, Scandanavia and Northern America, will converge on the arena on Friday March 22 (from 10am-6pm) and Saturday 23 (9.30am-4pm).

There is free car parking on-site, with the Friday entrance costing £5 – not the £4 originally advertised on the organiser’s website or in PPM.

It has been estimated in previous years that there could be as many as two million postcards up for sale.

See you there!
