Please contact us for advertising opportunities on the website and in the printed Book Fair Catalogue for 2023. We welcome enquiries from book related trade stands (bookbinders and other crafts, software, &c) to exhibit in the trade area of the Fair.

Bags & Security

In the interests of security we regret that no bags (apart from small handbags), or overcoats are allowed into the Book Fair. These can be checked (free of charge) into the cloakroom. All books purchased at the Fair are sealed in bags with security stickers and will be checked by the security staff on leaving the Book Fair. Any small bags taken into the Fair may be searched upon entry and exit. Your co-operation is much appreciated. No books are allowed to be brought by visitors into the Fair. We regret that no dogs are allowed into the venue apart from guide dogs.
