Book Fair at The Barlow - Saturday 17th June

Edgworth’s next book fair will be held at the The Barlow in June 2023.

Book dealers from around Lancashire and the Manchester area will be attending and offering for sale a range of contemporary books, and a few rare, vintage and antiquarian titles typically only seen in our ever diminishing number of old bookshops.

Subject matter will include both non-fiction and fiction, and will encompass local, social and general history, industrial archaeology, transport, North West interest, new age and health,  art and science, nature and the environment, military, crime, music, theatre and film, thrillers, Folio Society publications, children’s books, antique and more recent annuals, interesting ephemera and some classical and contemporary literature.

Turton Local History Society will have a stall at the fair with copies of our various publications available to buy.

Entry will be free and the fair will be open from 9.30 am until 4.00 pm. Refreshments will be available in the Barlow’s own cafe, ‘The Reading Room’.
