Antiques and collectors fair returns to Norfolk Showground at Costessey

The Norfolk Antiques and Collectors' Fair returns to the Norfolk Showground at Costessey this weekend.

The event has more than 400 outdoor and indoor stands and features about 500 exhibitors inside the main exhibition halls and out on the show grounds.

It runs between 10am and 5pm tomorrow and 9am and 4pm on Sunday, with a valuer on site between 11am and 3pm.

Organiser Aztec Events has been running the show for 15 years. Director Matthew Upson said: 'It's definitely the biggest antiques and collectors' fair in East Anglia. We have got about 400 stands and we have a valuer there so people can bring items to get them valued.

'The event has regularly been featured on TV programmes such as Bargain Hunt.

'The event is just growing each year. We get visitors coming from America, Holland and all over the place.

'It brings a lot of people into the local area and the hotels are all packed for it, so it's good for the local economy.'
