From midday on Friday 8th June until midday Saturday 9th June, tens of thousands of books – over half of them just $1 – will be on sale for book lovers and bargain hunters everywhere. We are proud to play host to this much anticipated iconic event; reputedly the largest book sale in the Southern Hemisphere!
You are invited to come along - more than once even - as books in your favourite categories are replenished regularly throughout the sale by our ever energetic volunteers, and live music will be featured throughout to provide additional enjoyment. You will find books for all tastes: from thrillers to humour to child-rearing. If there’s a topic, we will have a book on it.
If you like the excitement of the crowds and the countdown, come along at the start as there is always a big crush for the first few hours. If you like the quiet and are a night owl remember that new books are constantly being brought out so no need to panic. However, if you want dollar-priced Sci Fi, Westerns or Art books, come early as these always sell out fast!
If all the books on the stage weren’t enough, you are encouraged to find your way downstairs under the stage where you’ll find the nearly new fiction and non fiction books together with text books, and antiquarian and collectable volumes.
A big part of the event is the wide range of live music performed throughout the sale. Even if books aren’t your thing, the organisers welcome you to come and have a closer than normal look at the beautiful theatre whilst enjoying the free entertainment?
We can only accept cash at the tills but there will be eftpos available to withdraw cash onsite. Tell everyone you know to come along and join in this unique institution.
