Annual Book Fair for Eseltjiesrus

Montagu Events - Annual Book Fair for Eseltjiesrus
We extend a warm invitation to bookworms and bargain browsers to join us. You can help to embrace the Sanctuary’s culture of caring at this milestone event, which brings in much needed funds through the sale of 14,000 books, all offered at bargain prices.

Kom maak gerus ‘n draai by McGregor – slegs twee uur van die Kaap af.
Diusende boeke is te koop by hierdie bielie van ‘n uitverkoping met winskopies aan die orde van die dag.
Kom snuffel en trakteer jouself op ‘n lekker vrag vol boeke vir die winter wat om die draai lê!

The choice includes new, pristine pre-owned and even collectable books – like 100 year old classics and first editions. Current novels, travel, a huge collection of new cook books, art, gardening and lifestyle books abound, plus there's also biography and a massive selection of children's titles.

The pleasure of your purchases helps to raise proceeds which turn a new page for countless donkeys. Plus the on-site coffee shop will have drinks and eats for all tastes.

Beyond the book buzz of the Book Fair, you can enjoy quiet contemplation at the Sanctuary, should you wish to walk the grounds that are dedicated to rescued and retired donkeys. There is also a special buffet offered at the Sanctuary's charming rustic restaurant. You are invited to Eat, Bray, Love!

You can even adopt a donkey! So, why not enjoy hunting out book-bargains during a donkey day-trip or weekend break?

Book Fair opening hours are 10am to 5pm on Friday 17th & Saturday 18th May and 10am to 2pm Sunday 19th May.
All books are on sale for an incredible R30 each on the last day (Sunday 19th May)!

Ons sien uit na jou besoek!
