Events

**STOP PRESS**  After a break, live music events will begin again in the autumn.  We are hosting three early evening events as part of the Kenilworth Arts Festival (17-23 September), and then our own events from October – look out for more details very soon.  Acts currently booked: Siobhan Wilson, The Froe, The Rude Mechanicals Band, Amy Kakoura & Andrew Sharpe, Against The Grain, Harri Endersby, Duotone, Harp & A Monkey, Dipper Malkin.  Event details will be posted soon, tickets will be available online and from the bookshop.

Live music, open mic, lectures, poetry and more, in the intimate setting of a small second-hand bookshop, maximum capacity 35.  Tea and coffee are available at our events – you are welcome to bring your own alcohol, we ask for £1 corkage, and prefer that you take bottles away with you.  See our Buy Tickets page for links to online sales for our ticketed events.

Tickets can be bought at the bookshop as well as online.

rembrandtTuesday 22 August, 8pm: art lecture.  Rembrandt.  A prolific painter with a genius for conveying depth of humanity – regarded as one of the greatest painters in European history. Some are put off by the muted colours of his paintings – lots of brown! – but his ability to make paint come alive is what ranks him among the very greatest.  8pm start, £8 inc tea/coffee.  All very welcome, all levels of knowledge catered for!  Lecturer: Dr Victoria Mier.  (Image: National Gallery, London)
