Event Information

The Annual PBFA Premier 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 attending from across the United Kingdom, travelling from as far afield as Scotland, East Anglia, London, the Midlands and right across the Northern Counties. 

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.
