The BA At The London Book Fair

The London Book Fair is on the move! The fair will be moving from Earls Court to the Olympia Exhibition Centre in 2015. It will take place on the 14th to the 16th April.


BA Members can attend the Fair for FREE and receive a number of key benefits making the Fair a more accessible, cost effective and highly relevant event for booksellers. 


BA Programme of Events @ LBF 2015

Key BA member benefits on offer include
Hosted Bookseller  Programme
For the last 4 years the  BA and LBF have run a  hosted bookseller programme which has  enabled over 150  booksellers attend the Fair and stay overnight in London for free. We'll be running the successful programme again in 2015. BA Members who are new to the Fair, or have not attended the Fair since 2010, should apply by contacting Naomi Gane.


London Book & Screen Week 
This year London Book Fair forms part of The London Book and Screen Week (13th to 19th April), which celebrates the role of the book and the written word at the heart of creative content across all formats. It comprises a week of events, revolving around the London Book Fair.

The aim for 2015 is to extend The London Book Fair beyond Olympia and spread the word about events taking place in London that are relevant to Book and Screen week and The London Book Fair. This means that we will be promoting London Bookshops to Fair visitors, and providing opportunities for London booksellers to promote themselves too.

LBF Bookshop Crawl 
The BA and The London Book Fair have created an LBF Bookshop Crawl for London Bookshops. This won’t be an organised crawl with fixed times, rather it presents a way of promoting your shop and encouraging Fair visitors to come to your shop. 

Promote your Events 
Promote any existing events (from author signings and reading groups to screenings and parties) or organise new events to celebrate London Book and Screen Week.
Post your events (13th to 19th April) and promote your shop during this celebratory week.
