A hole left by the closure of a regular antiques fair was filled at The Holt Hotel in Steeple Aston last weekend.

More than 25 dealers showed their wares at Antiques@TheHolt, an event organised by local dealers following the closure of a regular monthly fair at Woodstock.

Marcus Potts, who organised the event with his wife, Franca, and fellow dealer Stephen Reese, said: “We believed there was a need for something like this and, judging by the response, I think our decision has been vindicated.”

A second Antiques@TheHolt could take place in spring 2014.
