Event Information

Face mask wearing is no longer compulsory, however Government advice is to continue the wearing of masks in enclosed or crowded places.

The annual PBFA Book Fair in Harrogate is a firm favourite in the diaries of Northern bibliophiles and book collectors alike.  Running for over 40 years, this event is seen as the go-to book destination for Yorkshire bibliophiles.

This year we are pleased to confirm dealers are attending from across the United Kingdom, travelling from as far afield as Scotland, East Anglia, London, the Midlands and right across the Northern Counties.  Please scroll to the bottom for a link to the floor plans.

A strong mix of subjects will be on display, fiction and non-fiction, offered by specialist dealers, with knowledge and expertise!

Light refreshments in cafe.
