Event Information

The PBFA Brighton Book Fair will be held at Brighton Racecourse on Saturday October 30th 2021.  That's one short sentence to write, but it means a great deal to book lovers!  There has not been a book fair in Brighton for over twenty years and we are beginning again in style.  Our professional dealers will be bringing thousands of old books, maps, manuscripts and more to the fair.  All the items are properly described and authentic.

Brighton Racecourse is the perfect venue. It is on the edge of town so driving there is easy. There is limitless free parking. There is a snack bar and cafe so making a day of it is easy too. 

Social distancing measures will be in place and all visitors are strongly urged to wear a face covering.
