A new event for 2023!
The beautiful market town of Dulverton, the Southern Gateway to Exmoor, is planning an exciting new event in Dulverton Town Hall in March 2023.
What is happening?
On Saturday 25th March from 10.30am to 3.30pm, Adam Partridge Auctioneers are joining Visit Dulverton to host a valuation event in Dulverton’s historic Town Hall. Visitors will be invited to bring along their antiques, jewellery, fine art & collectors’ items. For a small fee the specialists on hand will give a valuation and history of the items that are brought along. The fee is to be £5 for a maximum of three portable items per person (that are small enough to carry!).
There will also be stalls from Dulverton’s own Oggies Music Shop – who have generously sponsored the event – and Sarah Fox Bespoke Jewellery. Oggies repurpose and reuse your old musical instruments into lamps and other items. Sarah takes antique cutlery and remodels into items of beautiful jewellery.
Refreshments will be available, the bar will be open – and there’ll be live music too!
Adam Partridge Auctioneers
Adam is well known as a regular face on television programmes such as Flog It!, Antiques Road Trip, Dickinson’s Real Deal and Bargain Hunt, and is delighted to be assisting Visit Dulverton with this new event.
Adam said, “The last two years have been very difficult for so many businesses, but also for towns and villages impacted by a lack of visitor numbers. When we were asked to offer a team of valuers for this event we instantly said yes! And with our new salesroom only a few miles away in Hele, we hope to be visiting this area a lot in the future”.
If anyone has large items or too many pieces to bring on the day, Adam Partridge Auctioneers are offering home appointments on either 25th or 26th March. For those wishing to sell items, the auctioneers will be able to accept pieces on the day for future specialist auctions.
No appointments will be necessary at Dulverton Antiques Valuation Day. It will be first come, first served, with a simple ticketing system on the day.

Meet the Somerset Waste Partnership’s Fixy Stall Too!
Visit Somerset Waste Partnership’s Fixy stall will also be at the event – promoting the repair and reuse of items.
At the Fixy stall, they’ll be accepting donations of unwanted smart tech for reuse, including laptops, tablets, mobile phones, PCs/desktops and digital cameras, smart speakers, smart watches, games consoles and accessories. If you can include the relevant power cables, AC adaptors and accessories, this will enable greater reuse. Please remove your device from iCloud or other accounts otherwise it cannot be reused. So dig out that forgotten unused smart tech, however old it is, and bring it along.
The Fixy people will pass this tech on to Somerset-based DonateIT, which will be repaired and repurposed before it goes back out into our communities, helping to address the digital divide. Data is completely wiped to comply with data protection regulations. Any items not fit for reuse will be recycled securely.
Electrical items are full of valuable raw materials, such as gold copper, aluminium and steel. Making new items also uses huge amounts of energy. Reusing them is a small but useful action in tackling climate change!
Visit http://donateit.co.uk/ for drop off locations for unwanted smart tech.
And remember you can recycle most of your small waste electrical items through your weekly kerbside recycling collections in Somerset. For more on how to recycle at the kerbside and through local recycling sites, visit https://www.somersetwaste.gov.uk
