The Antiques & Fine Art Fair at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa

The Mere Golf Resort & Spa is one of the UK's most desirable venues, and the 2018 antiques and fine art fair to be staged in the James Braid Suite is the perfect complement to the high society functions held here on a regular basis. With a luxury hotel now forming part of the complex, visitors can have a weekend away at The Mere, enjoying good food, sumptuous surroundings and of course all the delights of the antiques fair.

A three day vetted fair 23 - 25 February 2018

The finest examples of antiques and fine art will be on offer from around twenty-five specialist dealers, some of whom you might more often see at the top London fairs. Visitors can browse among the displays of period town and country furniture, romantic and contemporary sculpture, jewellery, traditional and modern paintings and watercolours, glass, lighting, silver, vintage watches and couture, aeronautica, maps and prints, clocks, mirrors, antiquities, historical artefacts, ceramics and many other decorative works of art.

The exhibitors will primarily be drawn from the country's leading  professional organisations, BADA and LAPADA The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers, and are all established, reputable specialists in their own fields.
