Bloomsbury Ephemera Fair

Etc Fairs’ monthly London Ephemera Fairs are held at the Galleon and Ellis Suites in the Royal National Hotel, Bloomsbury, and run throughout the year. The fair has grown considerably over the past 4 years and has established itself as the monthly London venue for postcards, ephemera, books and more.

The sheer array of material on offer can be amazing, including collectable postcards, manuscripts, books, maps, prints, posters, photographs, pulps, paperback and much more, if it’s collectable the Bloomsbury Ephemera Fairs will have it! With so much vintage material on offer many visitors stay all day to make sure they see everything that our exhibitors have on display.

If you are a seasoned collector, want to start collecting, or have an academic or other specific interest why not visit the Bloomsbury Ephemera Fair and see what’s on offer.

AREA & HISTORY

Bloomsbury is an area in the very heart of London, historically famous for its association with the arts; the Bloomsbury Group, the [lesser known] Bloomsbury Gang and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood all made it their base at one time or another, and the British Museum sits at its centre, formerly housing the British Library Reading Room.

Religion and academia have their champions & bastions in Bloomsbury too, with Nicholas Hawksmoor’s St George’s Church to the south, and the  The Bloomsbury Colleges (Birkbeck,  SOAS, et al) and UCL to name but a few of the venues for academic excellence that pepper this area of London.

GETTING TO THE FAIR

Bloomsbury is also extremely well-placed in London for public transport, with the famous main stations of Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston all within relatively easy walking distance or by tube/bus. Russell Square tube station, on the Piccadilly Line, is just a couple of minutes away from the Royal National Hotel by foot, and Tottenham Court Road tube station, at one end of the world-renowned Oxford Street shopping area. For more information please visit the Transport for London website.

PARKING

Should you wish to drive, there is no congestion charge on Sundays and there is free meter parking on many roads around the venue.
