Event Information

The Ilkley Book Fair is a long running and friendly event, sponsored this year by The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley.  We look forward to seeing customers old and new.  

Admission to the fair is free.

The King's Hall and Winter Garden venue is conveniently situated opposite the Ilkley train and bus station - an easy level walk from The Grove and central car park.  About fifty dealers will be attending, many from Yorkshire and Lancashire but also from as far afield as Scotland and the south coast offering thousands of items covering a huge variety of second-hand and antiquarian, fiction, non-fiction and related ephemera for collectors and browsers alike, from pocket money prices and beyond.
