The London International Horse Show 2007!

This is a very special year for the show as we celebrate the centenary of the first international horse show ever to be held in the historic Grand Hall, Olympia. The Centenary Finale at the end of each performance will be a celebration of this event and we have a very special performance – our Centenary Gala Performance on the evening of Monday 17th December when the great and the good will be returning to relive Olympia.

This site is full of information and news about the show – and, of course, you can buy your tickets here – the box office goes on sale on Monday 25th June at 9am.
Olympia box office opens on Monday 25th June when tickets will be available to the general public for one of the most exciting Olympia Horse Shows in the past few years.

2007 is going to be very special as we celebrate the centenary of the first ever international horse show in the Grand Hall, Olympia. In addition the shows dates are moving closer to Christmas when more children will be on school holidays so we are expecting high levels of ticket sales.

Please make sure that you check the programme carefully as some of the performances and classes have been moved – for example, the Rolex FEI World Cup supported by H&M is now on Saturday 22nd December, having taken place on a Sunday in previous years.
Show History
In 1907, the First Royal International Horse Show took place in The Grand Hall Olympia . This year we celebrate the centenary of that event at Olympia 2007.

We are currently researching the early years of the show and more information will be available on this page and in the lead up to the show. In the meantime, here’s a little taste of the type of material we have found – Lord Lonsdale who is shown in the top left of the picture below, was the driving force behind the show in 1907. This picture is a part of a magazine spread that reviewed the show at the time.

Whilst we research more history of the show in its early years, there is comprehensive history of the show from the 1970s to the present day which can be found by clicking through on the dates to the left. (www.olympiahorseshow.com)
