Fans of second-hand books are in for a treat as a book fair comes to Lancashire this July.

The Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA) event, scheduled for July 5 and 6, offers thousands of books for sale from dealers across the UK.

The event will be held at Brockholes in Preston and managed by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust.

The PBFA's book fair will run from 12pm to 5pm on Friday, July 5, and 10am to 4pm on Saturday, July 6.

Entry is free, and parking is also available at no charge. Visitors can also enjoy the selection of food and drink up for grabs.

Conference and wedding sales manager at Brockholes, Leah Ince, said: "It’s great to be hosting the PBFA fair for the second year running at Brockholes – it was incredibly popular last year.

“We know a lot of our visitors love reading and shopping sustainably, so this is a great way to combine the two and attract new faces who might not have visited our reserve previously.”

Neil Summersgill, the event's organiser, added: “We’re really looking forward to bringing our book fair to Brockholes again.

"Around 30 of our PBFA members will be offering a wide variety of books and materials for sale, so there will be something for everyone.

“It will be a great day out for bookworms and nature lovers alike – come along, have a browse and a bite to eat and enjoy the nature trails surrounding the floating visitor village.”

Brockholes is an old quarry transformed into a habitat for diverse wildlife by The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester & North Merseyside.

Since its opening in April 2011, it has hosted more than a million visitors.
