The 17th century Tankersley Manor in South Yorkshire is the newest addition to The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited’s successful Luxury Antiques Weekends in the north of England. Taking place from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 November 2010, the Luxury Antiques Weekend at Tankersley Manor, Church Lane, Tankersley near Barnsley will be the seventh fine art and antiques fair in The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited’s fairs calendar for 2010.
As with all the Luxury Antiques Weekends, exhibitors will be exclusively from the British Antique Dealers’ Association and LAPADA, the UK’s largest association of professional art and antiques dealers. A number of differing specialists will offer an eclectic mix from furniture to paintings, jewellery to oriental carpets and rugs, ensuring a mouth-watering array to tempt visitors to this new South Yorkshire fair.
Tankersley Manor, part of the QHotels group, has 100 spacious rooms, superb leisure and spa facilities and ample free parking, offering visitors the opportunity to turn their outing into a treat of a weekend away to explore the spectacular scenery of the Peaks and Dales, whilst enjoying the fine art and antiques on offer from around 20 specialist dealers.
“Tankersley Manor is just 20 minutes from Sheffield and very close to the M1, so is easily accessible,” said Ingrid Nilson of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited. “I have been encouraged by dealers’ support for our fairs and feel that in 2010 we have good geographical coverage for our exhibitors. With the wide reaching marketing and publicity back-up, these are more than just regional events.”
Following an earlier announcement of all the dates for 2010, there has been one amendment to the 2010 schedule. The Luxury Antiques Weekend at Kilhey Court in Lancashire will now take place from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 January 2010, kicking off The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited’s fine art and antiques fairs in 2010 (see full 2010 schedule on the next page).
