Besi Besemar July 26, 2018

Located in the quintessentially English South Downs, Firle Vintage Fair celebrates the beauty and antiquities of the past.

ON site there will be a host of cherry-picked antique and vintage stalls including; French brocante, haberdashery and latest crafting trends, Danish design, fashion, country interiors and gardenalia, plus original 1880 Victoriana fair-rides and Croquet games to have a whirl on.

Complementing the countryside location this year there will be rocking horse workshops, and talks on keeping bees, with local beekeepers bringing wildflower and herb infused honey to taste.

Special guest this year is the Charleston Trust who are coming to offer decorative upcycling workshops and talks on the Bloomsbury set.

For foodies they will be serving up the very best artisan street food and beverages with Iced Sloe Gins and a Champagne bar on the lawns in front of Firle Place.

A new addition this year The Food Emporium will host an array of artisan producers and specialty bakers.
