Manchester Book Fair

8 October 2023 @ 10:00 - 16:00


The Monastery is proud to be hosting The Manchester Book Fair in the spectacular setting of the Great Nave, with volumes of volumes and tons of tomes on offer!

If you love books, beautiful architecture, quiet spaces, tables & chairs so you can sit & browse at your leisure AND hang out with other people who also love books, you’re in the right place!

Come on down to the Monastery, inhale the intoxicating scent of ink on paper, and meet our book-loving tribe.

First held in 2019, this will be the fifth book fair at Gorton Monastery in the magnificent setting of the Great Nave. With around twenty dealers exhibiting for sale a wide range of secondhand, antiquarian and collectable books and ephemera there is sure to be much of interest to new and regular visitors.

There is a café serving light refreshments and a large car park onsite. Come along. Take your time, have a browse and take advantage of the cafe and (weather permitting) the garden, whilst supporting 40+ local and independent book sellers.

It’s just £1 on the door for adults and free for under-16s.

Family friendly, disabled access, free parking and a very warm welcome guaranteed.

No need to book, just turn up on the day.
