Welcome to the home page of Towy Events!

2015 will be Towy’s twenty-second year of organising antiques events in Carmarthen and this year we have responded to increasing popular demand and changed the format of the fairs.  We shall be arranging eight Antiques and Flea Market fairs, each of them one-day events.  These one-dayers have been hugely well-received and provide the opportunity for trading at very reasonable cost.

All indoor stands at the Carmarthen Antiques and Flea must be pre-booked.  

Outside stands at the Flea can be had by turning up on the day

and paying at the gate (£42.00 inc VAT).

Gates open at 7.30 am for sellers.

The Showground Postcode is SA33 5DR, but take care, your sat nav will take you to the farm across the main road, so look out for signs to the Showground when you get to within a mile of us.

Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Markets


The highly regarded Carmarthen Antiques Fairs will incorporate vintage dealers alongside antique stalls in 2015.

Fair organisers Robert and Carol Pugh have built a good reputation for their Flea Markets at Carmarthen Showground and have decided to combine these popular events with their more traditional antiques fairs.


A PIECE OF HISTORY TO BE SOLD AT CARMARTHEN ANTIQUES & FLEA MARKET


The Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Market which takes place this month on Sunday July the 26th is once again attracting interest from collectors and antique enthusiasts from across Wales and beyond.


Renowned for its excellent reputation for quality pieces and unique finds, amongst the treasures at the forthcoming event will be a sample for the chair back which formed part of the Prince of Wales’ historic investiture ceremony in Caernarfon Castle in 1969.

The Investiture Chair was designed by Lord Snowdon and used by royals and celebrities to witness Prince Charles accepting his Prince of Wales title. It features an embossed gold Prince of Wales feather crest accompanied by the Prince of Wales’ motto ich dien (I serve).


The sample for the chair back, which has been hidden away for many years, is very rare and fair organiser Robert Pugh has already seen a great deal of interest in the piece: “Those seated on the special ‘Red Chairs’ (the nickname was given due to them being stained in vermillion, so as not to stain the clothes of VIPs if rained upon) had to be a royal, a dignitary or a celebrity.”


He continued: “Most of the chairs themselves were sold off after the investiture ceremony, usually to the well-known people who sat on them. It’s very exciting therefore to be offering for sale a sample of the specially designed chair back.”
























It’s not however just pieces associated with

Royalty and celebrities that can be found at

the Antiques and Flea Market. Two beautiful

samplers made by sisters, Catherine and

Ann Evans at ‘Cross Inn School’ in Talley in

1839 will also be for sale. Framed together,

the samplers are a lovely decorative item

that show the skills of the 11 and 13 year old girls.
