It’s one of the premier decorative dates in the year, and no wonder as the Roman City of Bath, with its splendid Georgian architecture, prepares for the 35th outing of the splendid Bath Decorative Antiques Fair from 15-16 March 2024, with a preview on Thursday 14 March.

Set in the Bath Pavilion, at the heart of the city, this vibrant event has been running for thirty-five years, the last fourteen under the direction of Sue Ede and Peter Hodder of Cooper Events, whose unrivalled experience and expertise are the bedrock of its popularity and success, along with other leading fixtures in Buxton, Harrogate and The Cotswolds.

On the Agenda for 2024

So, what can visitors expect to see this year in Bath?

From the beautiful designs of antique ceramics and furniture, through decorative works of art and architectural garden statuary to a wide selection of fine art, including Modern British painting and design.

Highlights will include grand painted cabinets, distinctive chateau furniture, commanding statuary, cast iron urns, and garden benches tailored for outdoor elegance. Discover farmhouse tables, rustic oak furniture, intriguing architectural elements, unique salvage pieces, and diverse lighting options. An opulent mix of antique textiles, intricate needleworks, and rugs sourced globally, complemented by a collection of folk art, mirrors, early glass, and English and Continental pottery will be on display.

“From Georgian to G-Plan, we have the best on offer for any discerning interior or garden,” says Sue.

As ever, the focus is on quality and originality, with sustainability playing an important part as the exhibitors show the practical elegance of tables, chairs and other furniture whose rich history has seen them pass through many hands.

Returning exhibitor Rug Addiction, known for their captivating antique Persian & Kurdish rugs, will display a collection that spans the globe.

Art remains a vibrant component of the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair, with offerings that traverse time from solemn period portraits to the bright and bold strokes of modern art.
