Conditions of Entry
As advised by the Metropolitan Police, we operate a total bag search policy at this event.
All bags will be searched upon entry to the venue and all bags (except small handbags) must be checked into the Cloakroom before entering the Fair.
Please note that no books, maps, prints or manuscripts may be taken into the Fair and must be checked into the cloakroom. If you are bringing material for inspection by a specific named exhibitor by pre-appointment, please tell the front of house staff, who will assist you.
We appreciate your co-operation to ensure the safety and security of our visitors and exhibitors.
Battersea Evolution is just one mile from both Victoria Train Station and Sloane Square Underground Station. Accessed via the Chelsea Bridge Gate, the venue sits within the heart of the Park.
