Blind date with a book at SoLo Craft Fair

Don't judge a book by its cover!

Art & Culture

Whether you're a fiction fanatic, mystery mad, or a sci-fi supporter, visit SoLo Craft Fair for a blind date with a book.

A stall of second-hand books will be set up outside the store, but each book will be wrapped in plain paper with only a few key details to the genre of the book written on the front. This means you have to take a chance and choose the book based on its "personality" - maybe you'll even find your new favourite book!

The books are free, and you are encouraged (but not required!) to bring an old book along to swap for a mystery new one. One of the books will also contain a £10 SoLo Craft Fair voucher to spend in store, so visit on Sunday 29th November between 2-4pm to select your story!

The SoLo Craft Fair Shop showcasing the designs of over 60 makers, and Little Louie's Cafe and wine bar will also be open serving coffee and cocktails if you fancy a refreshment whilst you're there.

Books will be available on a first come first served basis, so arrive early to avoid disappointment!
