About

About Royal county
of Berkshire militaria Fair

Run by collectors for collectors. We are passionate about maintaining and growing interest in collecting militaria.

Many of us may have inherited a war trophy, medal or souvenir from a veteran family member and been fascinated by the story behind it and the circumstances under which it was acquired. You will find the Royal County of Berkshire Militaria Fair is the ideal place to buy, sell and trade in these historic artefacts and thus keep history alive!

 

Our collectors fairs are held at Sindlesham Court, Mole Road, Wokingham, Berkshire RG41 5EA.

 

Sindlesham Court was originally known as Sindlesham Lodge, the main building having been constructed in the late 1700’s. Before World War II it was owned by a Mrs Smith, a relative of Lady Asquith and it was subsequently requisitioned for use during the war by Miles Aircraft of Woodley as a hostel and training school for female employees. 

 

After the war, in 1948, the Salvatorians established it as a house of studies, putting up new buildings to house students for the priesthood. During the following years the buildings were considerably extended.

The Flavell suit in which our fair is held has good lighting, is well heated and has a licensed bar from which alcoholic and hot beverages can be purchased.

Outside you will find freshly cooked hot food available from our food van. 

 

There are excellent toilet facilities along with disabled access to the building. The site has ample parking for up to 200 cars.
