ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Following the success of the the third Antique Arms Fair at Olympia which took place on the 29 September 2018, organiser Thomas Del Mar has announced that the Fourth Antique Arms Fair will join with the long running Park Lane Arms Fair.  The collaborative new event will take place on 2 March 2019 in the same venue as 2018, at Olympia in the Pillar Hall.

Thomas Del Mar, who started the Antique Arms Fair at Olympia in September 2017 told ANF: "I am excited about this enhancement to the already successful fair, and feel that the considerable experience and existing reputation of the Park Lane Arms Fair will help the fair to continue to grow from strength to strength.

David Oliver, founder of The Park Lane Arms Fair, comments "I held my first London Fair at the Dorchester Hotel in 1982 and subsequent annual events at the Marriot Hotel, Grosvenor Square, since when we have enjoyed an outstanding reputation for quality exhibitors and a scholarly catalogue. I am delighted that Thomas Del Mar and I have come to this agreement and particularly pleased to have been invited to continue to work on the fair catalogues.

The fair sponsored Qest (The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust), for the second time, a charity supporting excellence in British craftsmanship.
