This calendar lists a selection of forthcoming specialist fairs and markets in the UK.

During lockdown, fairs organisers held virtual events and some of these are continuing alongside in-person fairs. In the UK, the PBFA (Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association) is holding its monthly online fairs as its physical fairs come back onto the calendar and the ABA (Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association) is holding a
virtual Firsts Online in late May a few months ahead of its Firsts London in-person fair on October 21-24 at its new location of the Saatchi Gallery.

Reminder: lockdown rules differ both around the world and within devolved nations of the UK. Local authorities may also be involved in approving events.

Lockdown dates are subject to change based on government criteria and therefore the dates listed here are also subject to change. Readers are advised to check with the fair or event concerned before travelling any distance, in case of last-minute cancellations or alterations.
