Crowds flock to The Peterborough Festival of Antiques

The East of England Arena and Events Centre is celebrating the successful conclusion of The Peterborough Festival of Antiques, September 23-24, 2022, one of the UK’s biggest antique markets.

International Antiques & Collectors Fairs (IACF) transformed the venue into a hub for collectors and enthusiasts who could browse the wide range of collectibles, vintage items, and antique pieces on offer from hundreds of sellers. The event made full use of the venue’s facilities and space, with stands and trade marquees spread throughout the atrium, the Cattle Building, the Pavilion, and the Arena, as well as several acres of outdoor pitches.

Renay-Nicole Kenton, event manager at the East of England Arena, said, “The Peterborough Festival of Antiques was another successful event for IACF. We saw many eager visitors and exhibitors in attendance, all sharing their passion for antiquing and vintage history which made for a wonderful atmosphere.

“Our team is looking forward to working with IACF again in 2023 when the Festival of Antiques returns to the venue for both its Easter and Autumn shows.”
