On acquiring the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair in 2011, Sue and Peter Hodder of Cooper Events were keen to retain the atmosphere of this cherished event and the exhibitors, many of whom have been with the fair since it started, have stayed on and enjoy working with the new owners. The fair was previously run by Robin Coleman, the Bath-based dealer, who founded the fair in 1989 and organised it for 23 years.

After 29 years, the Fair is still the leading regional event to beat, with a vibrant mix of exhibitors from across the UK and Europe where rustic to refined ultra-relevant stylish English Country House style, Mid Century design, industrial chic, Swedish period painted furniture, period portraits and perennially fashionable crusty iron garden furniture will rub shoulders with decorative staples of the 80s and 90s now back in demand by a new and younger audience – French marble top chocolatiers’ tables, elaborate brass and steel bakers’ racks, buffets and armoires in fruitwood, huge pine refectory tables and Windsor chairs, rows of yellow confit pots, pub signs, marine and advertising ephemera, homely Staffordshire dogs, samplers and quilts and yes, large scale oak, mahogany and walnut brown furniture re-imagined by a new generation of decorators and collectors.

Following many requests for a second Bath Decorative Antiques Fair, the new Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair was launched to much acclaim in October 2016 and is now a firm fixture in the autumn antiques fair calendar where it has been established as a companion fair to Bath Decorative Antiques Fair with many of the Bath exhibitors attending and with a very similar relaxed atmosphere at the luxurious Haynes Motor Museum some 25 miles south west of Bath and adjacent to the property and media hotspot of Bruton, Somerset, tagged by the media as the “Notting Hill of the South West”.

Sue Ede is well known, with her husband Peter Hodder, for organising major antiques fairs across the UK for the past 30 years. As Cooper Events, they stage The Annual Buxton Antiques Fair and The Pavilions of Harrogate Antiques & Fine Art Fair in the north of England and in the West Country, The Cotswolds Decorative Antiques & Fine Art Fair at Westonbirt School, near Tetbury.

Sue Ede also runs The Shepton Flea at the Bath & West Showground - an event which attracts many trade and private buyers across the antiques, vintage and collectables market.
