For your information
Last Saturday of every month, 10am until 2pm
Our monthly book fairs attract many visitors to our centre in Colchester, spreading the word that Samaritans have a presence in Colchester. We have many regulars, for whom the Book Fair is an important part of the month, but also we always attract new visitors. Helpers and visitors alike create a wonderful atmosphere, enhanced by the hugely popular café and cake stall provided by our Book Fair cake tsar and fabulous cake bakers. As well as book seekers, some come just to buy ‘cakes to die for’ and enjoy the atmosphere!
We stock a vast range of books with something for everyone.
Car parking is available in the school car park next door for book fair patrons only, and donations towards the cost of its hire are very much appreciated. Entry to the book fair itself is free.
