The Decorative Living Fair, Friday May 12 (09.30-16.00) & Saturday May 13 (10.00-17.00) at Eridge Park, Nr Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN3 9JT

Discover one of the best loved decorative antiques and vintage fairs with over sixty exhibitors with beautifully designed stands laid out among the gorgeous house, garden and grounds of Eridge Park. Every year, organisers Hetty Purbrick and Caroline Zoob select a mix of dealers selling English and continental decorative antiques, French brocante, vintage and antique textiles, gardenalia and statuary. They include a small but select offering of contemporary and vintage fashion and jewellery, as well as one or two stands selling contemporary homewares. They also love to find new designer makers, especially those who work with or are inspired by antique or vintage materials.

The fair has a reputation for being a great place to find key pieces for interiors, which is probably why the early bird entry tickets are so popular with the public, interior designers and dealers alike. Browse our gallery for images of previous fairs, and follow us on Instagram and Facebook to keep in touch.

Historic Tunbridge Wells is only three miles away, with fabulous shops, cafes and comfortable hotels. Gardens such as Sissinghurst and Great Dixter are within an hour’s drive.
