The PBFA Brighton Book Fair will be held at Brighton Racecourse on Saturday October 30th, 2021. That's one short sentence to read, but it means a great deal to book lovers! There has not been a book fair in Brighton for over twenty years and we're beginning again in style. About 40 professional dealers will be bringing thousands of old books, maps, manuscripts and more to the fair. Book collecting is cool - and you don't have to be an expert to join in.

The Provincial Booksellers' Fairs Association is the UK's largest body of professional booksellers. Established in 1972, they travel the country from Aberdeen to Penzance to 'bring books to the people'. At the Brighton Fair you'll find collectible books on every subject. The dealers are friendly and approachable and you can be sure that all the items are properly described and authentic. Don't miss out - it's like a giant second-hand bookshop coming to town for just one day! You can find out more and get a FREE ticket by visiting the facebook group Brighton Book Fair, by following Instagram @brightonbookfair or by visiting our website.
