We are getting very excited at PTS HQ at the prospect of our first ever National Stamp Celebration Day!
National Stamp Celebration Day is an incentive being run by The PTS to celebrate the World’s birthplace of the postage stamp and to encourage more people to put down their franking machines and start using more stamps on envelopes as well. The event is being held in London at The Royal Philatelic Society which is usually a members only building but on 4 May from 10am – 4pm will open its doors to the public wishing to learn more about stamps and their collections. A team of philatelists will be on hand to answer any questions, as well as other activities going on throughout the day.
