Leeds Book Fair at Pudsey

Thank you to booksellers and customers alike who attended the book fair on 8th November and thank you too to the staff of Pudsey Civic Hall who have made the fair so easy to organise throughout the year.

Thank you too to authors Barbara Robertson www.barbararobertson.co.uk and Sasha lane sashalane@googlemail.com for bringing a selection of their books to the fair.

The most significant change for 2016 is that after the next Book Fair on 7th February Pudsey fairs will no longer be organised by Jon Smith and myself, but are being taken over by Jamie Prophet from Skipton. Jamie intends to run a Book and Media Fair and we hope that you will be able to continue to support Pudsey, both as stallholders and book-buyers. Jon and I wish Jamie every success with his new venture and will be giving him as much support as possible.

As this is the last homepage for the fair in its present format I should like to thank Oliver Llewellyn-Jones for creating the Leeds Book Fair website for me six years ago and for keeping it up to date.

The dates for the new Book and Media fair in 2016 are:
Saturday 9 April
Sunday 26 June
Sunday 2 October
Sunday 27 November

Refreshments will be available, parking on Sundays is free and access to the hall is flat! The opening times for this fair are: 9.00am for trade (with a trade card please unless you are personally known to the organisers), 9.30am for the general public and the fair will close at 3.30pm. Admission costs will remain the same at 1.00 (concessions – 60p) and under 16s will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Access to a new map is available on the website. This is information for the final book fair on 7th February and after that this website will close down.

Other 2016 dates for a local book fair at Gargrave Village Hall are:
Saturday 19 March
Saturday 4 June
Saturday 1 October
