Antiques gems on offer at Bantock House

Fascinating finds are lined up at the next antiques fair being held at City of Wolverhampton's historic Bantock House Museum and Park.

The beautiful house and gardens, off Finchfield Road, is hosting the latest monthly antiques and collectors fair on Sunday, June 3.

Bargain hunters will find a variety of traders offering both affordable and quality items including furniture, silver, jewellery, militaria, and high-quality ceramics, at the antiques fair. It runs from 9am to 3.30pm and the entrance fee is £1.50, under 16s go free.

There is free parking available, refreshments at the Courtyard Café, and the chance to look around Bantock House and its gardens.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said:

The antiques fair has proved very popular at the site and seen hundreds of visitors in attendance each month. It is held in a wonderful location and people travel from far and wide to visit the fairs, the museum and the beautiful gardens, where lunch can also be enjoyed in the Courtyard Café. It is a very pleasant way to spend a little time on a Sunday and well worth a visit. I encourage everyone who has an interest in antiques to come along and see what gems they can find.”

The Antiques Fairs take place on the first Sunday of every month.

The Antiques shop, located in the conservatory at Bantock House is open Tuesday to Sunday (10am–4pm), with Bantock House Museum open Tuesday to Sunday (11am–5pm).
