New Maidenhead Postcard & Antiques Fair

There’s a welcome new fair on the scene in Berkshire – with Neil Baldry returning to the fold as an organiser to pick up the void that will be left after Mike Huddy’s final show at nearby Twyford in November.

It will be held on Sunday October 8 at Manor Green School, Maidenhead.

Neil said: “It’s really to take the place of Mike’s Twyford. I’m getting one fair in before Mike’s final show to get the ball running. I just felt it would be a shame to lose the fair completely in this area. I’m hoping to attract 15 plus dealers.

“I’m looking to hold it quarterly and it will be on the second Sunday of the month. There is already an antique fair there on the second Sunday of the month but we will be in a different room. It’s a really good venue with lots of free parking.”
