Special & Themed Fairs

During the Summer Etc Fairs run special editions of their Bloomsbury Book & Ephemera Fairs respectively, as part of the Rare Book London events. Due to venue availability we will not be able to host the Bloomsbury Summer Ephemera Fair in 2019. The Bloomsbury Summer Book Fair is however set to be a bumper event on Sunday June 9th!

The Bloomsbury Summer Book Fair is on Sunday June 9th and is proving to be very popular, if you are thinking of exhibiting, do get in touch soon to secure your stand.  Check this space regularly for further details of our 2019 Summer Events. If you want to exhibit at this fair, please email us using the contact page for a booking form.

These annual summer events are our most popular fairs. If you’re planning a visit to London during the summer these could make for the perfect break from the hot metropolitan hustle & bustle…find out more

At the end of the year, as usual, our Christmas Fairs, on December 8th (Bloomsbury Book Fair) and December 22nd (Bloomsbury Book & Ephemera Fair), always designed to bring some seasonal cheer and often a great resource for those looking for something special, unusual or unique as a Christmas present. From Victorian chromolithographed Christmas Cards to modern Private Press publications, signed autobiographies or even classic modern fiction in first edition, you’ll be amazed how inspirational our Christmas Fairs can be!

A Fair for all Seasons

Beyond our annual Summer Fairs we also host other special occasions outside the usual calendared Fairs, in particular  themed fairs. THE NEXT THEMED FAIR IS: THE PULP & PAPERBACK FAIR on November 24th, a very popular event, come join the fun! Doors open from 9.30-3pm. 

We are also pleased to announce that we will be welcoming to the Bloomsbury Book Fair exhibiting members from the Ephemera Society who are no longer holding fairs periodically at the Holiday Inn.  Coming up in 2019 we will be holding two more Pulp and Paperback Fairs, the first on April 28th, and then October 27th, the summer sees our annual bonanza with this year with just one event: the Bloomsbury Summer Fair on Sunday June 9th, which is proving to be very popular, if you want to exhibit, book your place now!

We are also looking to develop various ideas for more themed fairs dedicated to books, ephemera, postcards, manuscripts, maps, photographs, small antiques etc. relating to various themes/collectors/subjects…more information to follow soon…
