The BookBenches return! 4 and 5 October

Wednesday the 24th September, 2014

Due to a fantastic last-minute opportunity our BookBenches are returning for one weekend only! The 51 BookBenches which have been dotted all over London this summer will make a brief return – all in one place!

On the 4 and 5 October all 51 BookBenches will be displayed together before they are sold at auction.

The University of London has kindly agreed to gather all 51 BookBenches together to be displayed to the public in Gordon Square Garden WC1 from 10am to 6pm over the weekend.

This is a brilliant last-minute chance that came up, so save the date in your diaries!

For more information and how to get to Gordon Square Garden WC1, take a look at this map.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the University of London and the management committee for generously lending us this space to display all the BookBenches. 

Our charity auction takes place at the Southbank Centre on 7 October. All proceeds go to the National Literacy Trust for their vital work improving literacy levels in the UK.

Tickets for the auction can be bought and you can register to bid online, all auction information here.
