24 January 2011
As you may be aware, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has sold the Lawrence Hall to Westminster School. Unfortunately, this means that we will no longer be able to hold Philatex at the hall.
We have considered moving to a new venue, but have come to the conclusion that Philatex is the Lawrence Hall. The hall has been the home of philately for decades. It was the reason that Philatex came into existence in the first place and is a familiar destination for both collectors and dealers.
For this reason, we have reluctantly come to the decision that Philatex April 2012 was the last show.
We would like to thank you for all your support over the years. Philatex could not have been the success that it has been without you.
