05 02 21 Summer Olympia 2021 Cancelled

Mary Claire Boyd, Fair Director of Summer & Winter Olympia Art & Antiques Fairs has confirmed that Summer Olympia 2021 will not go ahead in June.

Mary Claire Boyd told ANF:  June is a few months away and hopefully by then the situation will have improved, but it would be unreasonable of us to expect dealers commit to the Fair at this stage. In order to run the event, we would have to commit to considerable costs now to make it happen, and we also need confidence that the buyers would be able to travel to come to the Fair to make it worth while for the dealers. That is just not the case yet.

However, we have confidence that come the Autumn, business will have returned to normal and we are planning our Winter Art & Antiques Fair as usual. This will run from 1–7 November when we look forward to celebrating our 30th Anniversary.

We are also in discussions with Olympia to confirm the dates for June 2022 when together we will return with renewed confidence and energy."

ANF understands that plans will be announced to support Olympia exhibitors via the fair website, visitor database and social media platforms during 2021.
