The Aardvark August Car Boot!

The Aardvark Books August Car Boot returns again! The August Bank Holiday Car Boot 2022, 9am-3pm: all outside, distanced, bring your own weather protection! There will be live music (tba) and hot and cold refreshments. Free entry and free parking, all welcome.

On Monday 29th August from 9am - 3pm, Aardvark Books is delighted to welcome you to our annual August Bank Holiday Car Boot!  Visitors to our Car Boot events often comment on the relaxed vibe and fantastic music; come along and bring your friends and family for a relaxed, sociable, fun day out!

Pitches outside on the car park and field, all distanced, and bring your own weather protection - or pray for sunshine!

For those of you who know the Vide Greniers of old, or even the Food Fairs, we will hope to create an enjoyable day out, with live music, and refreshments which will include tea, coffee and bacon rolls for breakfast!

 The bookshop and café will be open from 10am-4pm, so after you've browsed the car boot you can come in for books, and coffee, tea and cake, inside or out.

Interested in taking a pitch? Call us 01547 530744, or call in, Tuesday - Sunday 10am-4pm to book. The charge is still £10 per single pitch.

At the time of writing in February 2022 , we're still being COVID-safe and taking sensible precautions and distancing; you are invited to wear masks inside please, and sanitiser is available throughout the shop. Here's hoping that by the summer things will have improved!

Event starts at 9:00am.
