Hertfordshire, UK - After some deliberation we have decided not to hold a Salvo Fair next year. There have been thirteen Salvo Fairs, eleven of them held in consecutive years from 2003 to 2013, mostly at Knebworth.
The Salvo Fair is the world's largest architectural salvage fair, with a strong brand and a loyal following. Other traditional antique fairs are marketing themselves as home and salvage fairs too. Arthur Swallow is planning to hold a home and salvage fair at Loseley in Surrey in mid-July which is very close to the Salvo Fair dates at the end of June.
A minor consideration is that a Salvo Fair in late June 2014 would clash with the World Cup, as it did in 2006 and 2010.
We plan to spend more time next year on boosting other aspects of Salvo's business. Watch this space for announcements.
We would like to thank all the sponsors, exhibitors and fairgoers who have taken part in Salvo Fair, especially to those who have stuck with us through thick and thin. We hope you will come back to a bumper Salvo Fair in 2015.
