Book Sales


The next Petworth Society Book Sale will be held on Saturday 10th September 2022. The doors will open at 10am and the sale will run until 3pm. This will be the last book sale for the time being whilst we seek a successor to Miles.  Sadly, Miles Costello is stepping down from running the sales and, after 22 years, we are significantly grateful for all the time he has given us in relation to not only running the events which were monthly until recently, but also spending significant time collecting donations and sorting the books in readiness for sales.   The Society is seeking a volunteer to lead the team of dedicated helpers to continue running the sales. If interested, please contact the Chairman via PLEASE NOTE:  we are unable to accept donations of books for the time being.


Leconfield Hall. There is no charge for entry.


Beginning as an experiment in 2000, the Petworth Society Book Sales have become, for many, a central offering of the Society. They attract a large, regular clientele to the Leconfield Hall. From 2022, the book sales will take place quarterly, on the second Saturday of every month. More than mere sales, they bring together both local people and others from further away. The proceeds go towards producing The Petworth Society Magazine.
