The London Book Fair Sharjah Market Focus

  • 10-12 March 2020
  • London

As The London Book Fair has been cancelled, the British Council Market Focus Cultural Programme events next week will not go ahead. We continue to monitor the situation and work with our partners regarding any additional Market Focus activity. The health of our visitors, students, customers and colleagues is our priority throughout this rapidly evolving situation.

Sharjah takes the stage as The London Book Fair’s Market Focus in March 2020. Working with the 
Sharjah Book Authority, the British Council will showcase some of the best writing coming from the United Arab Emirates in a range of literary events with Emirati writers.

Sharjah has developed an international reputation for being a centre of publishing in the Gulf and has the honour of being the 2019/20 UNESCO World Book Capital.
