That's what happens in life, the days roll on regardless. January and February were a mixed bag for the shop. The events have been AMAZING. Nearly all have been sold out or very close. We had to turn people away from our film night, board game night and folk club due to being at capacity! (Sorry for those not able to get in). As it's been dark and cold, the general trade has been middling, paying the bills but not setting things on fire (Don't do that in a bookshop).
Anyway, March is here! It's getting lighter and warmer so hopefully things will pick up a bit. We're open 7 days a week now 10-6 Monday to Saturday and 11-4 Sunday. Let's have a look ahead to what we have on in March...
We have the usual retro games, folk club, poetry,films, board games and book club, but we also have an EXTRA folk club as the superb Boo Hewerdine is here! He's worked with the likes of Mel C, Eddi Reader and even been nominated for an Ivor Novello award! It's next Thursday (March 10th) so grab tickets quick from HERE.
We also host a special poetry event with Antony Owen and guests from Hiroshima on March 17th. Free entry for that. Details HERE.
We've also just announced Keith James is back with a new show The Music of Yusuf - Cat Stevens. Keith has been here twice before with his Nick Drake show and Leonard Cohen show, both brilliant. Tickets are £10 from HERE.

One final thing I'm asking, as it's the 1st March, I thought I'd ask for a big favour. We do really well on social media, but there's always room for more likes and follows. Could you like the bookshop over on facebook and share the post that's on there? Being independent is brilliant but marketing is hard and expensive and rely a lot on word of mouth. A follow on Twitter and Instagram all helps too!
Have a lovely month. I'll try to update the blog with other stuff soon.
