The North's biggest book fair

(19 July 2019)

Bigger and better than ever, the Durham Palestine Educational Trust’s Summer Book Fair runs from Saturday, 27 July to Sunday, 4 August in the Pemberton Rooms on Palace Green. The fair is open 10am to 4pm each day and admission is free. Accompanied children are welcome. New stock arrives every day. For further information please email

DPET’s book sales have established an outstanding reputation for range and quality. There’s something for everyone among 15,000 high quality new and used books that include all academic subjects and leisure interests plus children’s books, art, cookery, fiction, nature, adventure and travel, religion, music, poetry, drama, and humour. All are available at bargain prices and many are just 50p.

All proceeds go to DPET which, in partnership with Durham University, has financed 38 scholarships since 2001 for outstanding Palestinian graduates to take Master’s degree courses at Durham. All returned to help the development of their country.
