Book Market set to return to Exeter Cathedral Green
Published: 28 June 2023
Book worms can look forward to a veritable feast of literature next month in the form of a Book Market on Exeter’s Cathedral Green.
Exeter UNESCO City of Literature will be bringing the event to the idyllic city centre setting for a third outing on Sunday 16 July, from 11am until 4pm.
Head to the Cathedral steps for a day of bookish delights, with independent bookshops from across Devon, local food and drink, and plenty of literary activities.
People will be able to support a whole host of bookshops from Exeter, Okehampton, Ashburton, Honiton, Ivybridge and elsewhere.
Book worms will then be able to feast on fabulous food from Ten Fifty, Daily Bowl, How On Earth Deli, and Cake or Death.
There’ll be a chance to have a go at paper-making with Pulp2 and book-binding with Plymouth Book Co-op. Attendees will be able to try out an old school typewriter from Francis Kay Vintage, and learn how to play the adventure storytelling board game Circle Tales. There’ll also be a chance to see The Pelican Press in action - the first wheelchair printing press by The Pelican Project & Positive Light Projects.
