New antiques fair comes to Lincoln

New market: A new event in Lincoln will see old collectibles go on sale in a historic city setting.

Lincoln BIG and antiques specialist Unique Auctions have teamed up to create a new opportunity for would-be traders and shoppers.

The very first Castle Hill Antiques Fair will take place on Sunday, August 4, when shoppers can browse and spend time in the popular historic area.

Over 30 stands will be set up in the Castle Square, filled with silver, pottery, porcelain, Asian and Fine Art, modern collectables, toys and die-cast pieces, along with retro and vintage must-haves.

The fair, which will start at 10am and run until 4pm, is an opportunity for antiques collectors looking to make the break into selling and purchasing of tempting antiques and collectables.

Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan said: “We have pulled out the stops this year, with our biggest ever programme of summertime events. These have included our highly successful July 4 independence day celebrations, Lincoln Festival, Lincoln Dances, the Bailgate Busking and Children’s Festivals.

“We are delighted to be working with Unique Auctions to bring another first to the city, which we feel is particularly suited to the Castle Hill area of Lincoln.”
