OLYMPIA ON SOCIAL

Join us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to find out all the latest for Olympia, The London International Horse Show.

A BIG CHANGE FOR OLYMPIA, THE LONDON INTERNATIONAL HORSE SHOW!
Olympia, The London International Horse Show’s 2021 edition will relocate to ExCeL London and take place from Thursday 16 to Monday 20 December 2021, organisers announced today.
The Olympia London venue in West Kensington, which has been home to the iconic horse show for the last 49 years, is currently undergoing a re-development plan. As a result of COVID-19, the building activity for the re-development programme has accelerated. The revised construction programme will restrict the use of the venue for events in December 2021, hence the decision to move the Christmas horse show from Olympia London to ExCeL London. Read more at the link in our bio.
STAY TUNED! BOX OFFICE OPENING DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON! #LondonHorseShow

HEROES OF OLYMPIA - THE OLYMPIA STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS
The truth is that we couldn't fit all these heroes into one photo. Delivering an event like Olympia requires huge amounts of work from hundreds of people, and you better believe than every single person involved puts their heart and soul into it - and every single person is missing being there this year!
We would be lost without our amazing Volunteers, who deserve an enormous thank you. And the Olympia staff in all their roles - who make sure everything from your sandwich, to your seat, to your showjumping surface and shopping village layout is absolutely in tip top condition ready for you. We can't wait to see you again in 2021, until then MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

RECIPE: OLYMPIA'S FAMOUS FISH PIE
We're getting ready for the #OlympiaOnlineParty this evening and our thoughts are drifting in the direction of Olympia's amazing food stalls - and in particular the fish bar!
Olympia hosts the whole spectrum of food, from Champagne Bar bites to restaurant dining, to street food to pizza, to Crussh's amazing fit food and smoothies (a particular favourite of the Media Team!) and we're so sad not to be seeing our lovely caterers this year. However, they have been kind enough to provide us with the recipe for the famous Olympia Fish Pies - deliciously rich and comforting, they're exactly what we need to see us through a long and dark December. Best served with a glass of @champagnetaittinger and an episode of #OlympiaOnline!

SERVES SIX
Any fish can be used but ideally you will need salmon & cod, do add shellfish if you wish.
250g salmon
250g cod

FOR THE SAUCE
75g butter
55g flour
700ml milk
1 bay leaf
200g onion, finely chopped
100ml white wine
100ml double cream
2 tbsp of lemon juice
salt
black pepper
10g chopped dill
10g chopped tarragon
5g chopped chervil or parsley

METHOD
Add the white wine and the chopped onions to a pan on a low heat. Reduce the wine until the pan is dry, then remove the onions and set aside. In the same pan, add the butter and flour to form a roux. Little by little add the milk (stirring continuously) then the bay leaf and cook out the roux until the sauce is a nice consistency.
Remove the bay leaf, add the onions, then cream, salt, pepper and lemon juice and turn the stove onto a very low heat. Then add the salmon and the cod and cook for a further 3 minutes. Finish by adding your dill, tarragon and parsley. Pour into your serving dish.

FOR THE MASHED POTATOES
500g potatoes, peeled and diced
80g butter
100ml milk
2 egg yolks
1 pinch of ground nutmeg
5g of salt
black pepper, freshly ground

Cook and mash potatoes, then stir in other ingredients, making sure there are no lumps. The mash can then be piped or spooned on top of the fish pie. If desired, top with a crumb made of breadcrumbs, Parmesan, lemon zest, garlic and parsley, blended with olive oil.

Construct and bake at 180c for 20mins
