” Our latest Fair held on the 9th August 2015 was well attended for a Summer venue, our visitor numbers down only by 30 on our previous fair.
Since we moved to our new venue at Charnock Richard ( Park Hall Hotel ) we have been able to increase the numbers of dealers to circa 45 and climbing !! We are pleased that we are building up dealers who offer quality Antique Weapons and also Specialist Medals from many eras of history…..
With regards to the advertising for our Fair, we have always placed our adverts in leading magazines and for 2016 we have added the ” Military History Monthly” magazine to these, another top quality monthly magazine which specializes in detailed histories of famous battles and personalities from all ages.
Our next Fair is on Sunday the 8th November ( Almost Christmas again !) when we will have a very good representation of German and Allied Soldiers and Vehicles from WW2 1944 by the excellent ” North West Collectors Re-Enactment Group” for our visitors to see…..
The Group is now attending large Military Shows such as the Yorkshire Military Show, Southport Air Show and the excellent Heywood Tank Weekend where the group demonstrated many WW2 Weapons for the visitors including am impressive Blank Firing session. The group will play a leading role in the new Military Re-Enactment show now in the planning stages for mid Summer 2017 in Leicestershire, full details will be coming early next year with a Press Release…watch this space..the Battlefield Arena is superb !
Well, we look forward to seeing many of you on the 8th November….and we wish you, as always, success with finding that special piece for your collection ! “
Best Regards from the Preston Arms Fair Team
