Around 24 exhibitors from all parts of the UK, each a specialist in their field, showcase their best pieces at the Luxury Antiques Weekend. Everything is vetted for quality and authenticity and all exhibitors are members of either BADA (The British Antique Dealers’ Association) or LAPADA, the UK’s largest association of professional art and antiques dealers. All disciplines of art and antiques can be found here including town and country furniture, paintings, silverware, jewellery, ceramics, clocks, carpets and much more.

Over 70% of the exhibitors have already contracted to return, including Angela Hone Watercolours bringing a wide variety of 19th and 20th century artists, Garret & Hurst Sculpture with wonderful 19th century French bronzes; Nicholas Shaw Antiques’ treasure trove of silver; dazzling antique and contemporary jewellery from Plaza; John Newton Antiques with English and continental porcelain.

Local dealers taking part again include TB & R Jordan from Stockton-on-Tees, specialists in British Impressionist artists who painted in the area such as the Staithes Group and the Cullercoats Colony; Graham Smith Antiques of Newcastle-upon-Tyne who has the largest antiques shop in the north-east of England. John Nicholson & Dunelm Fine Art, specialists in Northumbrian, Yorkshire and Scottish artists from the 19th and 20th century, as well as European oil and watercolour paintings are also returning, along with J Dickinson Maps & Prints of Derbyshire. Newcomers include Edinburgh based Anthony Woodd Gallery, Ged Selby Antique Glass from Yorkshire and silver specialist Jeffrey Neal from Hertfordshire.

The Calvert Trust, a UK charity that enables people with disabilities, together with their families and friends, to achieve their potential through outdoor adventure activities in the countryside, is the Luxury Antiques Weekend’s chosen charity.
