It certainly seems more sensible that the three summer fairs are now closer together and this summer the Olympia Fair has moved to the National Hall which hopefully will prove a better venue than the Grand Hall.

What one has come to expect and enjoy at this Fair is the wide variety of pieces on offer from all periods. There is a special treat this year as there is an exhibition of works from the Sinquefield Collection featuring works by American artists of the ‘dust bowl years’ which have been specially brought over from the States.
