Many of you are stalwarts of the show but if you’re new to this two-day event then here’s the scoop.

The Lincolnshire Antiques & Home Show, originally established in 1995 at RAF Swinderby, is Arthur Swallow Fairs’ flagship event and one of the largest in Europe. Attracting visitors from all four corners of the world, the show has become an unmissable event for collectors, interior designers, retail buyers, set-designers, props buyers, landscape architects, restauranteurs and those passionate about creating a stylish indoor or outdoor living space.

Situated just outside the beautiful Cathedral city of Lincoln in the East Midlands the show takes place bi-monthly on the 200 acre Lincolnshire Showground site. The site is easy to reach and on-site facilities are excellent, with free parking and plenty of places to eat and purchase quality refreshments, plus a licensed bar in the Epic Centre.


With access to thousands of the finest exhibitors from the UK and Europe we are able to carefully curate a show that gives visitors the very best of what is available on the antiques and home market today, whether your preference is for fine antiques, art, pretty vintage, salvage, bric-a-brac, gardenalia, jewellery, curios, militaria, glassware, china or the unusual.


We will be welcoming back many exhibitors who have been with us for years but extend a hearty welcome to all of those coming for the first time.

We are especially delighted that Netherlands company Old Wood will be making the journey to join us with their beautiful mix of uber cool European industrial salvage and quirky antiques. Their big sturdy tables, statement lighting and old office furniture will have you falling in love.
