This event is still provisional and assumes that there is no lockdown and we are free to attend.

As in previous years the swapmeet will be held in the Guesten Hall Building. As it is at ground floor level it is much easier to unload and set up; also the hall is quite large and there is ample space. The Avoncroft Museum has very kindly waived their admission charges for paid up THG members for this day only. This will mean that members will not have to pay the £11.00 admission fee. Avoncroft will have a list on the day of current paid up THG members. If you want to get in free you will need to be on the list so that you can be ticked off. If your membership has lapsed then you will not get in without full payment. The free admission is just for the THG member. Seniors will have to pay £9.90 and children and students £6.00. The swapmeet will open to THG members from 10.30 when the museum opens. The swapmeet will end promptly at 1.00pm. The Museum closes at 5-00pm. We must vacate the Guesten hall at 3.30pm.

It is quite expensive to hire the Guesten Hall. To help subsidise the cost there will a charge of £5.00 per table. I will collect this from the table holders on the day. Tables must be booked in advance with me, the organiser, Laurence Rudolf, telephone the THG number (0330 321 1844) and select option 5, or e-mail

If you are booking a table you will have access to drive in from 9.00am. You can find out information about Avoncroft from their web site Under the Museum's health and safety policy, in order for this swapmeet to go ahead the THG has agreed to the following: No items that belong to THG members can be plugged in to any electrical sockets. The general public can come into the swapmeet. THG members' families are welcome. The museum will allow cars on site before 10.15am for unloading, however by 10.30am all cars should be off site and in the car park. The museum can only have a maximum of 6 cars near the Guesten Hall at any one time.

Avoncroft is two miles south of Bromsgrove off the A38 bypass (400 yards north of its junction with the B4091). It is three miles north of the M5, Junction 5 and three miles south of the M42, junction 1. Regular bus services from Bromsgrove and Droitwich and from Birmingham and Worcester. Bromsgrove railway station is one mile away.

We usually manage to get all 35 tables booked.
