London Pen Show

Posted by Simon Gray on

The next London Pen Show is on Sunday 4th October 2020

Location:  Novotel London West, 1 Shortlands, Hammersmith, London W6 8DR

This is one of the largest pen shows in Europe with lots of British and international dealers and visitors attending.  There is always a good mix of vintage and more modern pens on show. 

This is outside the the London Congestion and Emissions zones so no charges are payable.  Parking is available in the car park underneath the hotel. The nearest tube station - Hammersmith (Hammersmith & City line and Piccadilly line) - is a 3 minute walk away

Visiting a pen show, particularly one as large as London, is a great way of meeting other pen enthusiasts, collectors and dealers.  There's always an enormous selection of vintage and modern pens on display.  It's also the ideal venue to search for those exotic nibs and elusive spare parts

We organised the London Pen Show from 1995 until 2005 when Jeremy Collingridge and Ian Williamson took over and also developed several regional shows in the UK.  In late 2019, Vince Coates and John Twiss of TWICO assumed control of all the UK shows and are developing exciting plans for the future
