Hardley Heath Car Boot Sale

The Hardley Heath Car Boot Sale is one of the largest in the area. Join us on every Sunday morning of the year to buy or sell at the Hardley Heath Arena. Surrounded by beautiful terraced amphitheatres and extensive areas of secure car parking, the multi-functional and all weather Hardley Heath Arena is THE all purpose open air arena complex.
