Reading Club's 29th Annual Fair
June 21st - 2020
In 1993 the Fair was held at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre and we rented half of the Sports Hall, demand for a bigger and better Fair then led us to rent the whole floor area, but not long after this the entire Sports complex was closed for re-development. This forced the Club to fortunately re-locate to Rivermead Leisure Centre in Reading, where we have happily been located for almost 20 years. Success built on success, and now the Fair is considered one of the outstanding events in the yearly calendar of Postcard and Cigarette Card Fairs. Held as a joint Fair for both Cigarette and Trade Card collectors and Postcard collectors, and with 160 tables and 90 dealers from diverse parts of the UK it is hugely popular, attracting collectors from Scotland, Europe and even regulars from the USA.
This is the Fair for collectors, organised and run by fellow collectors.
If you have never visited the Fair before we urge you not to miss this once-a-year bonanza being held at Rivermead Leisure Centre, Richfield Avenue, Reading, RG1 8EQ on June 21st, opening at 9-30am to 4.30pm. Car parking is available at the Centre (meter charges apply), while Reading Railway Station is an excellent connection hub, and is about a mile walk from the Centre.
For the possibly non-interested wives or husbands there is the opportunity for a boat trip on the River Thames a 10 minute walk away, or Reading Town Centre and the Oracle Shopping Centre !!!!
