Event Information
The last couple of years have been very successful with many exhibitors giving very positive feedback.

This year we aim to offer a good selection of books, ephemera, posters and other miscellaneous items of interest. There will be a more dealers than ever exhibiting with us with a varied repertoire of stock for you to choose from.  We will have an exciting mix of antiquarian and scarce second hand books and ephemera for all tastes including much sought after modern first editions, some very scarce signed titles, colourful and nostalgic children's titles, rare travel books, cookery, history, natural history and beautiful illustrated works etc. Whatever your interests, be assured there will be something here to whet your appetite!

In conjunction with the hotel management we have endeavoured to provide a welcome and festive atmosphere while you are browsing for your favourite collector's items. Like every year, we will have our dedicated team of volunteers to ensure a smooth and organised Christmas fair.

Full disabled access. Everyone welcome. Cafes, bars and restaurants on site.
 
Please note: Large bags, rucksacks and suitcases are not allowed into the venue for security reasons. However, please keep your personal belongings with you at all times.

Happy Christmas from all of us at the PBFA!
