Lincolnshire Antiques and Home Show


Lincolnshire Antiques and Home Show

Established almost 30 years ago by Arthur Swallow Fairs, the Lincoln Antiques and Home Show is an unmissable one-day event that takes place at the Lincolnshire Showground. Antique and vintage collectors and trade buyers visit from all over the world to scour the 3000 stalls that are sited both indoors and out, with the event attracting not just buyers and collectors but also interior designers and set designers, prop buyers, architects and restauranteurs.

Visit Hemswell Antique Centres less than 10 miles away

Why not take the 17-minute drive from the showground to visit Hemswell Antique Centres en route to or from the Lincoln Antiques and Home Show? The perfect place for a great day out, the centres are sited on the former RAF Hemswell (home to the Lancaster Bomber during the Second World War) and are now home to over 400 independent dealers offering an incredible mix of antiques and collectables.

With four buildings, two coffee shops (one of which is licensed) and thousands of quality collectable items and antiques, the centres showcase the very best period antique furniture, vintage toys and games, vintage kitchenalia and antique railwayana to name but a few. Maintaining the tradition of our Air Force history, there is also a wide selection of militaria.

For those visitors looking to furnish a series of interiors, Hemswell offers inspiration galore across the centuries, from the Art Deco and Industrial style movements to Victorian and Edwardian English antiques, and we can offer a secure home delivery surface for large items.
