The Travelling Bookstall at Appleshaw St Peter’s Fete

On Saturday from 12pm till 4, we are going to be up at Appleshaw School. This time as well as all the children’s books, we are taking ALL the pre-loved (second hand) books we’ve been donated. 50p a book or 3 for a £1.00. Bargain

Our aim is to raise enough funds to be able to hire the hall at the Wellington centre. Cat’s Writing Room is helping us run the poetry cafes there one Saturday a month. We don’t want to clash with the poetry nights put on at The Lamb at all which is why we are calling them performance cafes.

Our focus will still be poetry but there are other word forms and we are looking at Pop Up Bar de Arts as our role model. They have short theatre pieces and monologues and short comic skits which makes the evening varied and fun.

Why the Wellington Centre? Easy access from town, easy access if you have a wheel chair, a price that isn’t too steep and not a pub. Younger members of Big Up Words have pointed out, they have no where to perform and they can’t go to a pub.

So there you go, pop along to Appleshaw St Peter’s and pick up a bargain and support our local authors and writers.
