Olympia opened its doors on the 26 December 1886 and during World War I, and was used as a temporary prison camp for German nationals. From 1915 onwards, the hall spent the rest of the war as an army clothing store.

By the late 1920s, Olympia had a client base of annual ‘regulars’ in its exhibitions calendar. From machine tools, shipping engineering, furniture trades, printing, advertising, mrketing, cookery, travel, fashions and hairdressing exhibitions.  Much the same as today!

In the 1920’s the official caterer for Olympia regularly produced luncheons and dinners for thousands but the “Feast of the 8,000” in 1925 remained the most famous and talked about for decades as the peak of organisational perfection. The occasion was a Masonic war memorial fund-raising dinner. The diners came from all over the world. They sat at three miles of tables served by 1,360 waitresses, supported by 700 cooks and porters with 86,000 glasses and plates!
