In response to government restrictions being lifted on markets we have taken immediate action to get a suitable and safe event on the ground to support the trade and quench the thirst of buyers. This will be a one-day only fully outdoor Antiques & Salvage Market held at Cheshire Showground near Knutsford on Saturday 27th June. Conveniently located just off junction 19 of the M6, the site is known to many as the location for the popular three-day Cheshire Decorative Home & Salvage Show, which, under normal circumstances, takes place twice during the summer months.
A Safe Market
The 100% outdoor market, which will adhere to current Covid-19 secure guidelines to protect exhibitors and buyers, will follow a drive-in format for dealers with unmarked pitches offering plenty of safe space to display stock. There will be hand sanitiser stations located throughout the event and staff will be on-hand to encourage social distancing. Dealers are being encouraged to take card payments where possible, however some cash payments will be expected, so visitors are advised to come prepared (no cash points on site).
Buyers are being asked to talk directly with dealers about the handling of stock and encouraged to only touch goods they intend to buy. We won't be giving out bags and advise buyers to bring their own. All staff will be PPE equipped and will be offering contactless payment facilities for purchasing tickets on the gate. There will be unlimited space for free parking to ensure maximum safety and convenience.
With a huge appetite for trading, this looks set to be an exciting and safe day for all those desperately in need of a rummage for antiques, architectural salvage and one-off pieces for home, garden and business.
