Lions Club of Bridgend

Book Fair


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

Our next Book Fair is on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd April 2022.

The event is open between 9am and 4pm each day at Westward Community Centre, Llangewydd Road, Bryntirion, Bridgend (opposite the chip shop).

We will be complying with relevant Covid regulations. Please wear a face covering at all times whilst at the event.

Some of the books for sale

There will be 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.

We also sell Jigsaws.
