The Olympia Art & Antiques Fair 2016

The Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair is set to return to London for the 44th year, as The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia. Running over seven days from 27th June until 3rd July, it is a key event in the global art and antiques calendar for 2016 and will play host to a vast array of items from antiquity to the present day.

As London’s original art and antiques fair, it offers unrivalled diversity and more choice of high quality vetted art, antiques, furniture, jewellery and collectors’ pieces than any other show in the British capital.

Mary Claire Boyd, Fair Director said: “Every year, thousands of visitors are bowled over by the wealth of pieces and scale of the interiors ideas in the historic Olympia hall. Dealers collect their best pieces throughout the year especially for this seven day event and the presentation of stock is different every year but always inspiring.

The high level of the jewellery also gives the event a distinctly glamorous edge. To have this number of experts ready and willing to share their knowledge and talk about the history of the pieces is a rare treat”.

She added: “Our strict vetting policy involves a team of 100 experts checking every piece for sale before the fair opens so visitors can buy with complete confidence.”

A tailored events programme with interesting, informative and thought provoking talks will take place throughout the Fair, featuring high profile speakers from the world’s leading art, design and heritage organisations – including the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), World of Interiors, the British Museum, the V&A and the Landmark Trust.

A Collectors’ Preview on Monday 27th June, late night openings, champagne bar and a specially created menu at the Mosimann’s restaurant all set against the elegant backdrop of Olympia National Hall in West London, combine to make the Fair a prestigious and must – attend event in London’s summer calendar.

Tickets are priced at £15 in advance, £20 on the door and £60 on Preview day*.

The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia, takes place at the Olympia National, London, W14 8UX.
