17 August 2018

A year or two ago we moved from Hills Road, Homerton College to the other side of the railway line, to the small industrial estate named Restwell House, where our books found a space next to Belfast Bed Superstore, St Barnabas Press, Jack's Gelato, Deliveroo kitchens and the home of Steak and Honour burger vans (just past the Cambridge Computer Museum) We did bring some of the green spirit from our previous location, but it will take a few years until we complete the transformation of this industrial site into a park.

Three or four years since our move here, it is high time indeed to have a party. Tables and chairs will come out into the parking lot, and Plurabelle Books requests the pleasure of your company on 17 August 2018 after 6 pm.

Almost five years at our new location, the bookseller is waiting for his guests. The Victorian china will be unwrapped, and with the help of our local suppliers we shall put on a little spread. Come and have a look how we do book recycling and precision shelving, because Plurabelle is the better better better better world books for all you librarians with surplus stock. And for those who like to adopt a book or two, our book adoption center is open and always looking for new book parents.

If you arrive with a bicycle, the recommended path is taking the bike and pedestrian bridge from the Beehive Centre over the railway line: Then double back on yourself through two traffic lights and past Edmundsons Electricals, Topps Tiles and Reza's Tiles, down Coldhams Road.

If you plan to arrive with a car, be aware that our tables are occupying some of the parking lot and space to park may be limited. We are in the process of arranging additional car parking at the Cambridge Snooker Center further down the road.

Yes, there will be food. And there will be people, strangers mostly, but we also have plenty bookish corners where you can just commune with old books, quietly. A presto!

RSVP Rain cancels. Analphabets, unicyclists and children are welcome. Stock disposal authorities especially welcome. Donald Brexit closure celebration included (as applicable)
