Stampex, sponsored by Stanley Gibbons, is the UK’s largest philatelic show, exhibiting a masterful presentation of collected stamps from stamp dealers and specialists. This event is perfect for all stamp collectors and traders, as well as those wanting to learn more about the history of stamps and the hobby itself. The show, organised by The Philatelic Traders’ Society (PTS), is taking place at the Business Design Centre (BDC) in Islington, London this Autumn from 13-16th September 2017.

For Children:
There will be a wonderful kids’ area run by the charity Stamp Active. Throughout the week there will be activities including a photo booth and a selfie stand. This year the theme is “Children's Literature”. As well as understanding more about stamps and the hobby, the team will also host a live auction for children on Saturday.

For non-collectors:
Stamps in the Attic is an excellent opportunity to speak to the pre-registered Stampex stand holders about stamps and find out more about what’s in your past collection; then either start collecting again or perhaps sell it and start over! There may also be an opportunity to sell your collection at the show.

Unlike most other London-based shows, entry to Stampex is free and all who visit may purchase a show-specific Limited Edition Smilers Sheet and a free showguide and postcard; all of which make lovely keepsakes and souvenirs and are highly collectable pieces.

GENERAL INFO: Free Entry and families welcome
