A hamper full of shopping at Olympia

The brand new shopping village to be launched at Olympia International Show Jumping Championships this year is already being heralded as one of London’s leading pre-Christmas late night shopping extravaganzas.

More than 150 of Britain’s finest shops will be open all day, every day, providing flexible, imaginative and late night shopping – all under cover, easily accessible and with an unbeatable Christmas atmosphere, including Olympia’s very own Father Christmas.

With over thirty brand new stands to complement the traditional favourites, Olympia really does have something to suit the needs of every sort of shopper, male or female, young or old. High street fashion emporiums will rub shoulders with saddlery shops, exclusive jewellery specialists and the finest delicatessens. Visitors can shop for holidays, fine art, books and children’s toys without walking more than 100 metres. Dedicated shoppers might even need to book up two separate visits to make sure they don’t miss any of the spectacular performance or any of the shops!

The new Shopping Village is situated in Olympia’s famous National Hall, adjacent to the Grand Hall, in which the performances are held. A ticket for either the afternoon or evening performance at Olympia International Show Jumping Championships will provide access to the shopping village all day, which will now be open from 9.30am to the close of the show at approximately 10.45pm.

There will be ten performances at Olympia from Thursday 19th December – Monday 23rd December. The box office will be open from 8th July, telephone 0870 733 0733 or visit the web site at For Private Boxes please call Ianthe Pearce on 020 7370 8206.
