60 Years of Stampex

Stampex, the UK’s national stamp show, celebrates its Diamond anniversary this month. It was 60 years ago this February that the first exhibition to bear the Stampex name opened its doors to dealers, philatelists and members of the general public eager to learn more about what stamp collecting has to offer.

That very first Stampex exhibition took place at Central Hall, Westminster, between 7 and 14 January 1956 and offered a week-long display of philatelic material to both admire and purchase.

You can discover more about the history of the stamp show in the February issue of  Gibbons Stamp Monthly.
