On Saturday, November 13, Grimsargh Village Hall will be home to the North West Book Fair where pre-loved books can be bought.


The book fairs began in 1981, so this year is the 40th anniversary of the fairs, which run mainly across Lancashire.

There will be book sellers with books on a wide range of subjects: history, transport, nature, art, military, cartography, sport, local interest, literature, antiquarian, politics, science, biography, music, children’s, general fiction and much more.

Fair organiser Gerry Cotter said: “If you like books – proper books, not electronic ones – visiting a book fair is guaranteed to provide an enjoyable and interesting time. 

“Whatever your interest there is a good chance you will find something you hadn’t seen before, usually very reasonably priced. 

“Having said that, it is only right to warn you that visiting book fairs can become addictive – but what a delightful addiction to have!”
