There will be an abundance of Welsh pottery, art and Welsh textiles including a range of welsh tapestry blankets and cushions.

There will be exceptional displays of Wemys and Moorcroft.

Moorcroft pottery continues to be popular.

William Moorcroft started his own pottery in 1914 after working for James Macintyre for 15 years. William's designs attracted the attention of the Lasenby family, owners of Libertys and they helped him financially, to set up his own pottery.

The following years were very productive and designs such as Pomegranate, Moonlit Blue and Eventide became sought after.

William died in 1945 and his son Walter carried on his father's designs and his own.

The recession in the 1980's saw the family connection end and in 1986 the company was rescued by Hugh Edwards and Richard Dennis.They introduced new designs by Sally Tuffin and the regeneration of the pottery began.

Some rare examples will be in Dorset's dealers collection on display in the Glass House One such piece "Eventide" circa 1920 which has a Turdric style lid and a wonderful burnt orange colour.

The fair has a good balance of furniture ranging from Welsh oak furniture and period mahogany pieces, to an array of country pine.

There is free parking.

The fair is open 10am until 4.30pm. Admission is £5 to both the Gardens and the fair.

Dogs are allowed at the weekend fair .
