Lions Club of Bridgend

Book Fair


The largest Charity Book fair in Wales is held in Bridgend over 3 days in March/April of each year.

In 2020 the Book Fair was to take place from Friday the 3rd to Sunday the 5th April 2020 between 9am and 4pm each day at Westward Community Centre, Llangewydd Road, Bryntirion, Bridgend (opposite the chip shop). However this has now been postponed as a result of the current situation.

Some of the books for sale

There was literally thousands of books covering all kinds of fiction, non-fiction and children's categories. All books are in good condition and very competitively priced. This event started in 1994 when a profit of nearly £1,000 was raised over the three days. Both the numbers attending and quantity of Books have increased steadily over the intervening years until in recent years over 25,000 books have been available for sale generating a massive £200,000 since 1994 for good causes.

The club maintain a mailing list of regular attendees, which include both members of the public and book dealers. To subscribe simply click here.
