The UK’s biggest Subbuteo collector’s fair in Renishaw near Sheffield is back for 2020 with a confirmed date of Sunday 17 May.
The fair takes place twice a year and the first of 2020 will include the usual collection of buyers and sellers with up to 20 stalls featuring classic heavyweight, modern lightweight and Subbuteo merchandise all in one place.
Collectors from all over the world travel to Renishaw for the fair and it remains one of the biggest Subbuteo events in the UK.
