Antiques fair makes a return

THE dates have been announced for next year’s Luxury Antiques Weekend at Linden Hall.

The boutique fine art and antiques fair returns to the Macdonald Linden Hall Golf and Country Club, near Longhorsley, for its fifth staging between Friday, March 9 and Sunday, March 11.

Whether a seasoned collector or an eager newcomer, visitors will be spoilt for choice.

A total of 24 specialist dealers will be taking part, predominantly members of the British Antique Dealers Association or LAPADA, The Association of Art and Antiques Dealers.

In a relaxed and informal atmosphere, people can explore a treasure trove of 18th century paintings, contemporary Art Deco jewellery, George III furniture, antique Persian carpets, ancient Chinese ceramics and more.

St Oswald’s Hospice in Gosforth is the charity for the 2012 fair.
