The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia is the UK’s largest and most established art and antiques fair, taking place annually in June at London’s iconic Kensington Olympia Exhibition Centre.

Celebrating its 45th year in 2017, The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia is recognized as one of the most prestigious and established fairs in the UK, and an annual destination for over 30,000 discerning and sophisticated international visitors.

160 of the world’s finest specialist dealers are showcased here, presenting a wider choice of high quality, vetted art and antiques than any other fair in the capital. Featuring an eclectic mix of pieces drawn from antiquity to the present day, and with prices ranging from £100 to £1 million, Olympia is renowned as an unmissable event for private collectors, art industry professionals, dealers, property owners and interior decorators.

Since its inception in 2009, the LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair has grown to become a foremost international showcase for art and antiques, as well as one of the most prestigious events on the London social calendar.

It’s one of only two yearly events to grace the beautiful Berkeley Square. At the heart of the modern, cosmopolitan city yet steeped in historical resonance, the location could not be more fitting.

100 exhibitors present work from across the art, antiques, design and decorative arts spectrum. Including jewellery, furniture, carpets, tapestries, antiquities, clocks, ceramics, silver and fine art, authenticity is assured thanks to a 70-member specialist committee pre-vetting everything on sale.

With prices ranging from £500 to £500,000 and above, sought-after pieces appeal to both the established collector and first-time buyer alike. A unique stage that welcomes visitors from across the world, the fair blends eclecticism, artistry and hospitality in perfect measure. An esteemed occasion, and a door to an intriguing world.
