Programme fair to be held

Football fans are being encouraged to attend the Sheffield Programme Fair on Saturday, December 28.

It takes place at the Royal Victoria Holiday Inn Hotel, Victoria Station Road, Sheffield, S4 7YE, from 10.30am to 1.30pm. There is no charge for admission.

This will be the largest gathering of football traders and collectors in this part of the country this year, providing a perfect opportunity for football memorabilia buyers to browse through hundreds of thousands of items, ranging in value from a few pence to hundreds of pounds, and from pre-First World War items to current season issues. Admission is free.

Advice will be on hand for those who wish to develop an interest in the hobby, or have items they wish to sell or have valued. With so many collectables now purchased by mail or internet, this annual gathering gives football collectors an ideal opportunity to view a massive range of items.
