Olympia Show Jumping launches new Olympia Shopping Village

There have always been 100 reasons to go to the country’s favourite Christmas show, the Olympia International Show Jumping Championships, but the organiser’s of the world famous event have just given us another.

Olympia is known not only for its world-class show jumping but also for the depth and diversity of shopping that it offers just before Christmas. The great news is that the shopping will be even bigger and better from 2002 with the launch of The Olympia Shopping Village. The new area, which will be located in the National Hall, will incorporate all the stands currently around the Grand Hall. The increase in space will give trade stand holders the opportunity to create more of a shop feel and give visitors more room to move around and between the stands.

Adam Brown, Director of Olympia Show Jumping said: “I have been faced with every organiser’s dream problem, too many people and trade stand holders who want to increase the size of their stands! The solution is to use more of Olympia’s ample facilities. The new village will be open from approximately 10a.m. until the end of each evening performance and visitors who buy tickets to the show will automatically be able to shop all day if they wish. We think the changes should provide a vastly enhanced shopping experience.”

Tickets for Olympia International Show Jumping Championships (19th-23rd December) will be available in June. For further information on the show please contact +44 (0)20 370 8202 or visit the website at
