You are the best judge of whether your child would enjoy Stylist Live and whether you would enjoy it with them! The catwalk features some loud music and the event will be busy in places.

The event is free for children under five years of age and they would be expected to sit on your knee for the catwalk show or other talks.

Please note that the bars at Olympia London operate a ‘Challenge 25’ policy to avoid under 18s being able to obtain alcohol.

Purchasing tickets in advance is recommended to guarantee entry. Prices on the door are higher and some ticket types are subject to availability. All tickets purchased in advance include a complimentary cocktail, access to all open stages and catwalk shows. You can buy tickets here.

How can I guarantee a place at a talk, workshop or catwalk show?

All open stages and catwalk shows at Stylist Live will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. There is plenty of seating room provided. However, if there’s a particular session you’re interested in, we recommend arriving in plenty of time before the start to ensure you have the best chance of being seated. See the Talks & Workshops page and Catwalk Times.
