Preston Arms Fair – 7th August 2011 – NEW VENUE

Well, despite the most appalling weather, staff shortages and the trials and tribulations of a brand new venue the fair was considered a great success by the vast majority of dealers, many of them having a very profitable day. New table plans always take time to get “just right” and by the next fair on the 6th November 2011 any problems will be sorted out. Since the fair we have had several requests for tables so the waiting list is still expanding!

We were very pleased indeed to have a 1944 German Kettenkrad, fully restored by German military expert Paul Marshall over the past few years on show.

This unique vehicle was the centre of attraction for many military vehicle fans who were very surprised to see it just outside the entrance to the fair, many thanks Paul!

Everyone at the Preston Arms Fair work to make the events a success, and we are achieving a higher visitor number at each fair. We are hoping for an excellent

fair on the 6th November to help establish ourselves at the Dunkenhalgh as an important Militaria event in the North West, we always maintain quality advertising to keep the venue fresh in peoples minds.

We hope to see many more collectors in November, and we thank all of our dealers for their professionalism that have made the events a great success.

A final word, we were all very sorry that Arthur Thornton, who specialises in quality military reference books, was not well enough to attend the last fair in August.

We all wish Arthur well and hope to see him at the next event.
