I hate Halloween, so I’m afraid I’m planning to ignore it completely this year. 

However, there is a spirit I do like (in addition to some quaffable spirits, of course) and that’s The Spirit of Christmas Fair at Olympia which falls over Halloween this year.  And it will soon be upon us folks, not just Halloween and the fair, but Christmas itself. The fair takes place from 30 October – 5 November and has some 700 independent brands to explore including toys, fashion, homeware, and stylish décor, as well as fine food and drink from award-winning artisans and producers.

José Pizarro

New official restaurant partner this year is acclaimed Spanish chef, José Pizarro, who has curated a special Tapas menu showcasing his signature dishes, alongside exclusive creations for the show. Prepare yourself for a Spanish twist on traditional afternoon tea,  promising to be an unforgettable experience. These dishes are perfect for sharing with friends or family at the Fair in this new restaurant, ‘José Pizarro at Spirit of Christmas’. 

Free Workshops

2023 sees the return of the popular complimentary, creative Workshops, offering inspiration to visitors who can enjoy a range of interactive sessions including Jemma Cotterrell, The Shoe Loving Stylist on ‘How to dress with positivity and confidence this festive season’, ‘Biscuit decorating’ from Honeywell Bakes, and ‘Spanish party food inspiration’, while in conversation with José Pizarro himself.
