A Book Fair will be held on Saturday in the Village Hall and the adjoining side rooms. There will be literally thousands of Antiquarian, second hand and new books for sale, covering every subject imaginable. A real treasure trove for book lovers and some great ideas for Christmas gifts. Open 10.a.m until 3.p.m ( earlier closing time than normal ). Light refreshments available until 3.p.m.

Please spare a moment when you visit the event to think about Keith, our Book Fair organiser who sadly died suddenly a few weeks ago. Keith had spent an interesting life, spending some of the time in the Motor Industry which probably nurtured his love for all books related to transport. Keith was an extremely valued member of Gargrave Village Hall Committee and his input was both respected and appreciated. His fellow Book Fair friends along with Village Hall Committee members and volunteers have rallied round and offered help with the Book Fairs which will continue , and we hope will act as a lasting tribute to Keith .

2020 Book Fair Dates: Saturdays: 7th March, 6th June, 26th September and 5th December.  Tuesday 18th August.
