Antique Young Gun Awards at Alfies

Last Friday, July 4th, Alfies was the proud host of this year's Antique Young Gun Awards.

The Roof Top Kitchen was the perfect setting, the guests chatted excitedly, the drinks flowed and the sun shone down on the terrace. Spirits were high to say the least!

To start the proceedings, Bennie Gray delivered a witty opening speech followed by Gail McLeod editor of Antiques News & Fairs and a co-founder of the Antique Young Guns movement. The awards were hosted by fellow AYG founders George Johnson and Mark Hill.

The Antique Young Gun of 2014 was James Gooch of Doe & Hope, congratulations to James and to the 11 winners of the mentoring scheme, who were paired up with experienced members of the antiques trade, and to the 8 winners who won a showcase at the prestigious Lorfords @ Babdown.
