October sees the 18th Independent Radical Book Fair (22nd – 26th) offering the chance to keep our minds in tip top shape by participating in the many and varied author led events and the chance to buy many, many books. If you want to search for bargain trinkets then come to our ever popular Flea Markets on both 27th September and 1st November. Other serious toggery will be on offer at the Vintage Kilo rummage fest on the 18th. October’s Bruncheon (11th) will feature local musical talent creating a chilled out atmosphere alongside delicious home-made café food in the open space of the Drill Hall.
