ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The next Antique Arms Fair at Pillar Hall, Olympia London, takes place this Autumn on 29 September 2018.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

The fair organisers are continuing to sponsor the highly regarded Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust. The Charity funds the training and education of talented and aspiring craftspeople through traditional college courses, vocational training, apprenticeships or one on one training with a master craftsperson. Organiser Thomas Del Mar endorses the ethos of this charity - that is critical to enhance and nurture those essential craft skills that make a vital contribution to Britain’s cultural identity and the economy. Donations received on the day of the fair as well as a percentage of ticket sales will go to the Trust.

Prices for the objects start at around £50 and go up to tens of thousands.

Comments from the previous fair on the 21st April 2018 included:

Tom Bennett from the Arms and Armour Society "found the quality of the tables outstanding", Runjeet Singh said "The show staff and organisation was great", and Roberta d’Este and Michael Appleby thanked the organisers for the "best ever exhibitor care and consideration", and said they were "much looking forward to Autumn". Patrick Mestdagh said "we met new customers and were delighted to have sold a fine Indian shield."
