The 2015 edition of Olympia International Arts & Antiques Fair will run at the later date of 18 – 28 June, coinciding with a host of important cultural events in London.
This significant date change consolidates the capital’s influential position as the hub of the global art world during late June and will open up the fair to a greater number of visitors, both from the UK and abroad. Celebrating its 43rd year, Olympia is London’s original art and antiques fair, offering a wider choice of high quality, vetted art, antiques, furniture and collectors’ pieces than any other event in the British capital.
Situated in the heart of London, the fair will bring together 170 of the world’s leading specialist dealers. Offering a diverse and extensive array of exhibits drawn from antiquity to the present day, prices range from £100 to £1 million. The fair’s eclecticism will cater to the broadest possible range of interests and budgets – appealing to seasoned collectors and trade professionals, as well as those looking to acquire beautiful and unusual items.
Once again, the fair will stage a tailored events programme featuring high-profile speakers from some of the world’s most prestigious arts and heritage organisations. A stylish preview evening, champagne bar, late night openings and bespoke dining will consolidate the fair’s status as an unmissable cultural and social event in the international calendar.
Fair Director, Mary Claire Boyd, comments: “Since its establishment in 1972, Olympia has become internationally renowned for offering unrivalled choice and scope. The new dates for 2015 position the fair at the height of London’s Summer cultural season, making it more accessible to a wide range of visitors. We look forward to announcing the fair’s full exhibitor line-up, as well as details of the bespoke events programme and other exciting developments over the coming months.”
