Event Information

The Topsham Book Fair, formerly the Exeter 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 January, August and November - 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.
