Tricorn Fairs has announced that the Bristol Fine Antique Arms Fair will return on 11 September 2022 at a new venue, the Aztec West hotel and spa in Almondsbury, Bristol.
Originally scheduled to re-open this March at its former venue, Tricorn Fairs was forced to cancel the Fair owing to the last minute closure of the hotel to the general public. The new venue has easy road access (within minutes of Junction 16 of the M5), free parking, a well-lit exhibition hall with bar, refreshments and washroom facilities within the Fair itself, and the full amenities of the 4 star hotel adjoining the Event Suite. Tricorn Fairs also intends to reinstate Bristol FAAF as a twice yearly event on the first Sunday of March and September each year, as before. Dates for 2023 are already reserved and published on its website .
The Bristol FAAF showcases quality antiques and offers the collector the opportunity to meet the country's leading dealers. There will be the chance to peruse their current offerings, have your own items appraised, network with fellow collectors or just chat with fellow enthusiasts.
Exhibits include medieval armour, relics from the Old West, military history and target shooting. The Fair opens to the public at 10am (early entry, 9am) and closes at 3pm Full details of the Fair can be found on Tricorn Fairs' website at www.triconfairs.co.uk.
