The Annual Strand Book Festival
at Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium
Fri 24 Nov – Sun 10 Dec
Heavenly discounts upto 80%.

Extravagant range of over 40,000 titles for adults and children. With fresh stocks every single day.

At the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium, with direct access only through Gate 17 on Link Rd. Plus unlimited free parking on Cubbon Rd, Union Rd. and Link Rd.
