Subtle changes to summer fairs calendar

16 January '12 by the editors | Source: www.antiquestradegazette.com

The dates for the trio of major London summer fairs have now been released.

The sequence of the three events sees the Olympia International Fine Art & Antiques Fair (June 7-17) overlapped by Art Antiques London (June 13-20) followed just over a week later by Masterpiece (June 28 to July 4).

The calendar is subtly different from last year when Olympia and Art Antiques London (incorporating The International Ceramics Fair and Seminar) both opened on June 9. This year they will overlap rather than clash. The new dates also mean there will be less clear air between the first two fairs and Masterpiece at the end of the month.

Talk of the disjointed London summer season abounded at last year's fairs. Two events opening on the same day proved unpopular, while overseas visitors in particular were asked to make a choice between an early or a late June trip.
