Frome Book Fair returns to the Silk Mill

The fair organisers – Peter and Thais from The Frome Bookshop – are delighted to announce that the second fair of this year is returning to the more intimate venue on the 28th of September. The event will have 16 book sellers offering quality second hand, antiquarian books and ephemeral items. 

In addition to the bookshop that opened its doors in May 2018, they hope the fair will help raise the profile of second hand and collectable books in Frome and surrounding areas. The previous fairs were a success, both with the public and exhibitors, so much so that in March they co-organised a bigger fair, with 30 dealers, in the Cheese and Grain.

“We are one of the newest book fairs in the country and, bringing together some of the leading antiquarian book dealers in the South West, our aim is to be a successful addition to Frome’s busy calendar and become a destination to bibliophiles from all over the UK. We carefully invite dealers that can bring a selection of books that appeal to both the enthusiastic collector and those that are just being introduced to the wonderful world of old books”.
