Antiques Fair Success

Wed, 26/04/2000 - 01:00

Sunday 31st January saw East Durham College's Peterlee Campus play host to their first Antiques & Collectors Fair.

Despite the wintry conditions over 650 people passed through the doors to view the wares of the 75 exhibitors, which included ceramics, jewellery, tools, furniture, militaria, dolls and much more.

The fair, organised by CC Events, is one of many events the College will be hosting this year.

Organiser, Colin Caygill, said of the venue "The facilities lend themselves well to an event like this and both the transport links and free car parking made it easily accessible to the public and traders alike.” 

On the day Level 2 & 3 Catering students were on hand to serve much welcomed beverages and hot snacks in the comfort of Scene1.

The next fairs to be held at the College are:

Sunday, 18th April 2010 - Antiques & Collectors Fair

Sunday, 23rd May 2010 - Toy Collectors Fair
