2Covet are the new owners of The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair

Petworth Park

Last May, the eighth annual Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair went ahead to general
acclaim and with the organiser, The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited, having established a
marketing partnership with 2Covet, the online selling platform and owners of The Chelsea
Antiques & Fine Art Fair. This collaboration has now developed into the full handing over
of the Petworth Park Fair to 2Covet and the next event, scheduled for 5-7 May 2023, will
be managed by Sophie Wood, Fair Director of the Chelsea fair.
Ingrid Nilson, Director of The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited said: “I was very happy to
collaborate with 2Covet for the 2022 staging of our popular event in Petworth Park and I
am now equally pleased to see the fair enter its next phase under new management and
“It was an honour to be invited by the National Trust to launch the event in 2015 following
an introduction by Jackie Tudor, chair of the Petworth Business Association at the time,
and it has been a privilege to own and nurture this very special show. I have had the most
wonderful support from my own team, the loyal contractors, the businesses in Petworth,
the teams at Petworth House and the National Trust and of course the many committed
exhibitors who make this fair so special.”
“However, after eight years during which the fair has grown in stature and size, the time is
right for an organisation with a bigger reach and the ability to build on what we have
achieved to take the reins. The vision that the 2Covet directors have for the fair’s future is
one that enhancesrather than altersit and I look forward to working with them and Sophie
to ensure a seamless hand over.”
Said Sophie: “It is no secret that during the past eight years Ingrid and her trusted team
have created a fabulously successful event that not only benefits the dealers but also the
town of Petworth and its surrounding, supportive community and therefore we were
honoured to be approached by Ingrid to continue her work.“
“It is an event that my 2Covet colleagues and I are relishing to host. Ingrid has done such a
sterling job in establishing the fair that there is very little that we wish to change. I am a
great believer in not trying to fix something that isn’t broken, maybe we can just sprinkle
some of the “magic dust” that bought Chelsea back to life last year. We have a dynamic
setup with new and innovative ideas and the skills to further compliment what Ingrid has
“Many of the existing Chelsea fair exhibitors also cross over with the Petworth Park fair,
which is a good dynamic to have. Going forward, we will be looking to add extra value to
their stand packages by utilising the skill sets of our in-house development and marketing
team, headed up by my fellow director Zara Rowe.”
