Antiques fare returns after successful first run

Tunbridge Wells could soon become a leading town for the buying of antiques as The Pantiles is to host its second Antiques Festival.

Following the success of the inaugural event in July, The Pantiles Antiques Festival organised by Love Fairs is to return for a second time on Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18.

More than 50 antique and vintage dealers will return to the Upper and Lower Pantiles with some of their finest items. There will also be more antiques and friendly dealers inside The Pantiles Exchange.

“We just had to return to The Pantiles to hold another Antiques Festival following the feedback from the first one,” said Love Fairs. “The reaction from those that visited was so incredibly complimentary, especially from locals who loved having a dedicated antiques and vintage event on their doorstep.


“Visitors just seemed to love the mix and variety of items available as well as enjoying the amazing atmosphere over the two days.”


Visitors to the fair will also be able to have their own antiques and heirlooms valued by TV antiques celebrities, such as the knowledgeable Eric Knowles.

Entry to the festival is free and the festival is open from 10.30am to 5.00pm on the Saturday and 10.30am to 4.00pm on the Sunday.

The Antiques Festival follows a number of antiques businesses opening in the town recently, including Pushkin Antiques in the High Street and The Hoard in the Corn Exchange.
