Don't forget Harrogate

Posted on Wed, 4 March 2009 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

The North of England has always proved a hotbed of coin collectors - the bi-annual York Fair continues to go from strength to strength and the Monthly Leeds show is always popular. The Harrogate show has always had something of a more "chequered past" with it's popularity waning in recent years - until that is Simon Monks took it over! Last year's event, held as ever at the Old Swan Hotel, was very well attended both by dealers and collectors and we're expecting the same this year!

Once again it's a two-day event spanning Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March, starting at 11.00am on the Friday and finishing at 6.00pm and starting again on the Saturday at 10.00am and running until 4.00pm - although as with most fairs if you leave it until the last minute there won't be many stallholders left!

We're coming all teh way up from devon and are looking forward to a fun weekend!
