From 11am-4pm with readings from 12.30pm – it should be a good day out in this wonderfully restored historic building. Run by the organisers of the regular Stockport fair, its always got a great selection of books and records  and well worth a visit.
30 stalls of collectable and interesting books and records,
and a programme of music, literature and art.
