ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The new Olympia Arms Fair will be coming to the neo classical-styled venue of Pillar Hall in Olympia London, showcasing pieces and objects from international military history spanning more than 3 millennia. 

This inaugural event is for dealers, collectors and enthusiasts of antique arms, armour and militaria. 

Organised by Thomas Del Mar, an antique arms and armour auctioneer and founder of the auction cooperative 25 Blythe Road, the objects for sale will span the Bronze Age through to the First World War.  Tribal weapons will also be on show, broadening the scope of the event further.
