ANTIQUES and collectors fairs will return to Himley Hall after a hiatus of nearly three decades.

The first fair in the series takes place on Sunday July 21, where over 50 traders have already booked stands in what promises to be welcome return to the Dudley stately home.

Sunday's event takes place from 10am to 4pm, which is the first of a string of such fairs booked at Himley over the next 18 months.

Paul Rowson of Antiques at Events said: "We have been working behind the scenes for some time now to try and bring these once popular events back to Himley Hall.

"We are looking forward to the first fair and have booked them in around the third Sunday of every other month until the end of 2020."

Fairs are also confirmed for Sunday 15 September and Sunday 24 November. There is an entrance fee of £2 for adults and under 16s go in for free.
