The 50+ Show, London Olympia


The 50+ Show will return to the Grand Hall, London Olympia 10-12th July 2014

The 50+ Show in London, 2013

Wow - what a fantastic three days we had in London! Thursday saw crowds of visitors thronging to the show, ending up with a riotous and unforgettable performance from Brian Conley. Friday was also busy, culminating with a thoughtful and thought-provoking 'audience with' Esther Rantzen OBE. Saturday was a sweltering day, the hottest day of the year so far, with radio and TV advising people to stay at home and not to go outside between 11am and 3pm - but thousands of visitors still braved the heat to come to the show and enjoyed the day, climaxing with Angela Rippon on the Performance Stage.

Audited visitor numbers will be posted here shortly.
