The BTA Committee is monitoring the current situation. Swinpex had to be cancelled, so our AGM could not be held. At a 'virtual' committee meeting held on 16 July it was decided not to hold an AGM this year due to continued uncertainty about the situation.
Autumn Stampex has been cancelled, and will be replaced with a "virtual" Stampex. Click here for the latest update. The BTA will now be the lead society at Autumn Stampex 2021. Click here for further information.
The South of England stamp Fair at Ardingly, where we always have a table, has been cancelled.
We are of course affected by wider issues in our hobby. London 2020 has been rescheduled to 19 - 26 February 2022.
The Committee sends its best wishes to all our members. Keep well and enjoy spending time with your stamp collections!
The British Thematic Association is a national organisation composed of and supporting theme based collectors and exhibitors from across the UK, Europe and the world. We are affiliated with the Association of British Philatelic Societies and the American Topical Association.
Our aim is to give support to those wishing to embark on or expand a theme-based collection, whether it consists purely of stamps or postcards, or includes a wide range of additional material including postal history, postmarks and ephemera.
