    Ticket Prize Draw
    Win a two night stay with breakfast, for two people, to include one dinner with wines to match each course, at Ynyshir Hall, Wales*. This beautiful XVIth century manor, once home to Queen Victoria, bears the same name as the stunning RSPB reserve (home to BBC’s Springwatch) on its doorstep. Artist Rob and his wife Joan, the owners, have created a charming, unique hotel with the décor of each room revealing the painter’s love of colour. Ynyshir Hall is a member of the Relais & Châteaux association, a collection of the finest hotels and restaurants in the world.
    *Terms and conditions apply. To enter the prize draw, simply complete the ticket back and hand it in at the Security ticket point at the Fair.

    An internationally renowned Antiques and Fine Art fair, having built an unrivalled reputation for quality, will be held in the Duke of York Square on the 17th of March. Exhibitors are exclusively members of British Antique Dealers’ Association, and will be representing the UK’s leading specialists for the sale of quality art and antiques.

    All the paintings in the exhibition will be lent by four private collectors and have rarely been seen in public. The show, curated by the expert and Fair exhibitor John Spink, will include scenes of Devon, Cornwall and South Wales painted by Payne in the late 18th Century and display them alongside contemporary photographs of the same places. The exhibition, sponsored by the insurance brokers CBC UK, will provide both a fascinating historical record and a long overdue tribute to an artist who played an important part in the development of British Watercolour painting.

    Approximately 100 members of the British Antique Dealers’ Association will be exhibiting, with works of ceramics, silver, jewellery, glass, textiles, paintings and high quality furniture, set amidst the restaurants, cafes, shops and other cultural attractions of the Duke of York Square.
