The Aardvark Blog

The Aardvark Blogger is always busy!

Lots going on with events and visitors to the bookshop. Not to mention plans for next year, markets and fairs, author events, live music and much more. Keep looking in to find out about everything that is happening in the bookshop in the middle of nowhere.

Even more art books, planning for Easter30th March 2019

I am taking a breather from processing art books we bought at the London Bookfair, and instead am working through a wonderful library of mostly art and graphics titles. Some unusual books on Hockney, David Jones and Lucien Freud amongst others, as well as a good selection of classic and contemporary fiction.

Spring Music Event, Website, Graham Arnold, 'The Flower Garden'24th March 2019

Many thanks to Gareth Rees-Roberts for coming back to Aardvark to play a programme of Argentine guitar music yesterday. Thanks also to the record numbers who came and to the hard working Aardvark team ( this was Jenny and Laura's first Aardvark event). My apologies to any-one who had to wait to be served ( at times the queues were long) and to any-one who came and was unable to find a seat. There are further opportunities to hear music at Aardvark on the 20th of April, the 13th of July and the 26th of August. On the 20th of April the Trevor Davies trio will incorporate a fantastic young singer - more details on the website.

White Crow, London Bookfair etc10th March 2019

Many thanks to all at Borderlines for making our sponsorship of the film 'White Crow' so enjoyable. A full group of Aardvark staff and associates were at the film - which  I think I can safely say the whole audience seemed to really enjoy. Last night's showing at the Courtyard in Hereford was a pre-release preview, but I would urge you to go to see White Crow when it is more widely available. There is another showing as part of Borderlines in Malvern next week.

Borderlines Begins with a Flourish, London Book Fair, New Aardvarkistas2nd March 2019

The Gala screening of 'Everybody Knows' was packed and it was lovely to hear from Richard and Naomi how well ticket sales are going for this year's festival. The film itself is a tour de force with two wonderful performances at its heart by Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. Are there two more watchable actors on the planet working today?
