PBFA’s Kensington Christmas Book Fair returns, 3 December
The PBFA’s Kensington Christmas Book Fair returns on 3 December. Now a fixture on the British rare book calendar, the Christmas Book Fair has a new venue this year – the Hilton London Olympia Hotel at 380 Kensington High Street.
The fair opens at 11am and closes at 5pm. Entrance is £2 on the door or via a free ticket downloaded from the PBFA website. Thousands of rare books, prints, art and ephemera is available for sale from than 50 excellent booksellers.
The sellers in attendance include AshtonRareBooks, Worlds End Bookshop, Jonkers Rare Books, John Atkinson Fine & Rare Books, Peter Harrington, Holybourne Rare Books, Peter Foster Books, and Sophie Schneideman Rare Books. There is an intriguing mix of major sellers from London and smaller dealers from the rest of the country.
The hotel is a five-minute walk from Kensington Olympia Overground Station and 10 minutes walking from Earls Court (District and Piccadilly lines) or High Street Kensington (District and Circle lines) stations. Bus stops for the 9, 10, 27, 28, 49 and C1 routes are located just outside the hotel.
