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 have glasses and corkscrews, but we ask for £1 corkage, and prefer that you take bottles away with you.

We have a weekly craft group on a Wednesday, Nifty Needles, for anyone who does any kind of crafting – just a social group, bring along a current project, or come even if you aren’t a crafter but just want some company on a Wednesday evening! A small amount of table space is available. 7pm-9ish, £3 inc tea and cake.
