On the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the first postage stamps

London is to host an international stamp exhibition in 2015, from 13 to 16 May.

The venue will be the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington.

We have been holding philatelic exhibitions in London since 1890 and there have been many memorable shows here over the last 125 years, most recently the very successful LONDON 2010 World exhibition at the Business Design Centre. Maintaining this tradition we will have another four-day international show in 2015 to keep in touch with our friends and to play our part in promoting philately around the world. Space is limited so the competitive exhibition will be for affiliates of the European Federation of Philatelic Associations, FEPA,  which has granted patronage to the show. But we are delighted that LONDON 2015 has also been recognised by the International Philatelic Federation (FIP). London is a world centre of philately and we want everyone to take part.

So we invite all friends of philately around the world to join us in London as we celebrate 175 years of postage stamps which have given so much pleasure to so many people for so long.

Make it your ‘MUST GO’ event of 2015.
