Reopening Party. Events. News…

Firstly, thank you for all your continued support. It was a bit touch-and-go when we had to close for 10-odd weeks, but since re-opening, you’ve flocked in your droves, sales are up, and we’re in pretty good shape for the new year.

We took the opportunity to have a re-fit, and now have a greatly expanded children’s area, some book tables, and a cleaner, more spacious aesthetic.

We’ve almost completed the fine-tuning of layout, decor etc. and are pleased to announce an exciting programme of events for the coming months.

Highlights include:

Jeff Towns in conversation with Andrew Green on Edward Thomas & Wales (Thursday 21st Feb. Mumbles Tabernacle)
Matt Pritchard: Dirty Vegan (Thursday March 28th. Exist Skatepark)
Lisa Tippings: Secret Swansea (Sat 23rd Feb. In shop)
Geoff Brookes: In Knives We Trust (Sat March 2nd. In shop).
