For the first time, there will also be a display of Pinxton porcelain and expert Norman Taylor will be on hand to give information and advice.

The event will be opened by Graham Oliver who is the new owner of Carnfield Hall in Alfreton. Mr Oliver, who is an animal orthopaedic surgeon with a practice in Hucknall, has lived at Carfield Hall since 1st April.
