One of Britain’s few remaining two-day fairs and the largest event of its kind in northern England starts at York tomorrow (Friday August 30).
The York 2019 Card Expo International is being held in the Racecourse Grandstand from 11am to 6.30pm tomorrow, and from 10am-4.30pm on Saturday.
Around 70 dealers are attending – mostly from throughout the UK, but a few from overseas, including France, Germany and Holland.
For information, call organisers Jack and Felicity Stasiak on 01347 822722.
But there are plenty of other big fairs further south in the next few weeks – including Nottingham, Haywards Heath and Exeter, all on Saturday September 7; Norwich on Sunday September 15; and Woking on Friday/Saturday September 20/21.
