It’s back !!


SUNDAY 4th JUNE 2017


After a 10 year break, Colin Caygill Events announce the return of their most successful Cumbrian and Borders Antiques Fair.

Many will remember the Fair, which ran for 12 years…always with a full house in the City Leisure Centre and visitors travelling North and South for the event.

The terrible floods of 2005 brought everything in the City to a sudden halt that weekend and the start of a lengthy recovery for the thousands of people affected.

Now we are returning and it is time to move forward and re-launch…..



 The Sands Centre is the region’s biggest, high profile entertainment venue hosting an extensive programme of West End Shows, concerts and exhibitions.

 An extensive marketing plan is now underway to cover Cumbria, Dumfries, the Borders and Lothian and I look forward to welcoming you to this great venue on what I’m sure will once again become a great, regular Fair on the West Coast.

 Exhibitor parking is in white bays at the rear and side of the building, with easy access to the exhibition hall.

 A vast visitor pay and display car park at the front ensures easy parking on Sunday.


Northumberland’s new £20m flagship Leisure Centre is now open and the latest venue for CCE’s list of Antiques and Vintage Fairs. Ashington Leisure Centre winner of the Royal Institute of British Architects North East award will host our first Fair on the Sunday 23rd April.

This high profile venue is located in the heart of the retail centre of Ashington and is easily accessed from the car park with flat unloading into the sports hall. Without doubt the North’s most prestigious venue, it has superb facilities with a coffee shop and restaurant located in the modern triple height foyer.

The centre incorporates a number of artistic features including glazing inspired by the Pitman Painters and a feature wall inspired by the mining heritage of Ashington.


Following the success of our recent Fair, due to exhibitor requests we return to Newbiggin by the Sea on Sunday 26th March. Although a small intimate Fair the visitor spend was very high and both visitors and exhibitors were delighted to hear that we return in March to this well appointed carpeted hall.
