**CAMBRIDGE GLASS FAIR - FURTHER UPDATE**

Post by Oxbridge Fairs on Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:53 pm


The devastating fire and subsequent destruction of the Chilford Hall barns in June has meant that the next Cambridge Glass Fair on Sunday 23rd September has been moved to Linton Village College.

Linton Village College, which is located approximately one mile from Chilford Hall, has just opened its new wing which will provide a light and modern environment for the glass fair.

The Cambridge Glass Fair is one of the major specialist fairs in the U.K. with around 100 exhibitors selling fine antique and collectable glass from all periods. Exhibitors will also include contemporary artists showing their own work. This twice-yearly event usually features exhibitions, demonstrations and book signings.

As always there will be a special exhibition highlighting a particular glass collecting area. The exhibition for this fair will feature Victorian dumps and contemporary American paperweights. Peter Sellers, author of ‘Victorian Dumps, Paperweights, Mantel Ornaments, Doorstops and Whimsies, 1820-1914’, will be curating the dump exhibition while the Cambridge-based Paperweight Collectors Circle is providing the contemporary weight display.

In addition, the online collecting group Whitefriars.com will be staging an exhibition entitled ‘Whitefriars 20th Century clear and coloured cut crystal'.

Contemporary artists who are showing at the fair include Vic Bamforth and Allister Malcolm from Stourbridge, Rowan van der Holt from the West Country and Gloria Macarthur, a local artist from Hertfordshire.

Refreshments and free parking will be available.


Linton Village College, Linton, Cambs. CB21 4JB. Open from 10.30am – 4.00pm, admission is £5 with free entry for accompanied children under 16.

The fair website has now been updated to show the floorplans and the new exhibitor list.

There will be refreshments available from both the small cafe shown on the plan and also from a moblie catering van near the Old Hall which will provide hot bacon or sausage rolls, paninis etc plus drinks.

Although it's going to be very different from Chilford Hall hopefully we'll all have an enjoyable day.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
