Event Information

The Topsham Book Fair is located in the pleasant historic seaport of Topsham and is now the only PBFA book fair in Devon. It is held three times a year - in April, August and November this year - and regularly attracts a good number of traders who fill the hall.  

A full range of second-hand, rare and antiquarian books, ephemera, maps and prints are on sale from the more modest to the highly collectable and expensive.

Lunches, snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available.
