The Home of Christmas shopping, The Spirit of Christmas will return to Olympia, London from Monday 2nd to Sunday 8th November 2020 for the 20th year, with safety measures in place.
Shopping is done!
Offering festive inspiration and shopping, the event will host 800 independent boutiques and artisan in the halls of Olympia. From gifts and treats to entertaining ideas, food and drink brands, homeware, toys and curated fashion.
New measures and precautions will be in place, including temperature screening upon arrival, social distancing, hand sanatisers and protective screens on box offices.
There will also be wider aisles, multiple entrances and special social distance marshals to make sure visitors have an enjoyable shopping experience with physical distancing.
Catherine Thake, Show Director of Spirit of Christmas Fair says: “2020 will be a year remembered by historians and we all have our own story to tell about lockdown, but as we slowly and safely return to normality many of us want to reclaim and enjoy the pleasures of living our lives. This Christmas will be more important to families than ever before, with so many of us forced apart from our loved ones for such a long period of time. As soon as Spirit of Christmas Fair opens its doors at Olympia, this signals the start of the festive season, and this year promises to be a stylish and uplifting Christmas shopping experience in celebration of our 20th anniversary. The Spirit of Christmas Fair is a favourite shopping destination for consumers looking to get ahead early with their Christmas shopping, discover unique gifts and inspiration, and at the same time enjoy a fantastic day out with a loved one or friend. We are huge supporters of small businesses which means so many of the boutique brands we present are exclusively available at the Fair and this year you will also get a warm feeling that you are helping independent, smaller businesses survive the pandemic.”
