Hornsea Freeport will be hosting a Nostalgia Event which will take place on the August Bank Holiday weekend. The star of the event will be Paul Hayes, an antiques expert who will be appraising antiques and potteries brought in by visitors to the centre. The Hornsea Pottery Collectors and Research Society will be represented at the annual event, along with Hornsea Museum. Memories of the Hornsea Pottery factory and a pottery display will be available.
The Nostalgia Event was first held in 2010 and since that time has become much larger, creating more interest from the public. Since 2010, footfall and sales have significantly increased, helped by the Nostalgia Event, which aims to create happy memories. While valuations will be provided by experts, including Paul Hayes, pottery items will also be available for purchase. Hayes said:
“I’ve always been a big fan of Hornsea Pottery and I fondly remember the old factory site in Lancaster. Hornsea Freeport’s past nostalgia events have produced some real finds and I’m hoping that this year won’t be any different.”
There will be other events during the day, including a display of birds of prey. A band will be playing favourite tunes from the 50s, along with dancers performing the Lindy Hop. Antiques often conjure up fond memories of childhood, which is why antique furniture may still have a strong appeal with people of all ages. However, even older items like Victorian dining chairs are becoming increasingly popular among collectors.
