The Independent and Independent on Sunday have teamed up with 20th Century at Olympia to give away 500 tickets to the second annual fair in London.

20th Century at Olympia is an antiques fair with a difference, housing over 70 dealers selling a selection of work from leading 20th Century designers. The highlight of this year's fair will be the `Design for Outrage' exhibition - clothing, graphics and invention, spawned by the creative alliance of Malcolm McLaren, Vivienne Westwood and Jamie Reid.
