It's that time of year again when we work with Foyles to bring you the best programme of events for our Charing Cross Road Fest 2013. Due to the huge success of last year's festival, it takes place over a whole weekend this year, on June 22nd and 23rd. We also have a revamped website at www.lovecharingcrossroad.com which is easier to navigate.
Highlights for this year so far include Terry Deary, Laura Dockrill, the writers of the new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the chef from top Peruvian restaurant Ceviche in Foyles. We at Blackwell's are thrilled to be hosting Christopher Priest, a balloon debate to find the best fictional detective, a learn the ukulele session and our mammoth literary pub quiz in the evening at The Phoenix Artist Club.
The festival is designed to bring people back to our street and revive it as a cultural centre in London and celebrate the literary and musical history of Charing Cross Road and Denmark Street. There are more shops and businesses involved than last year and we hope that the Love Charing Cross Road movement will continue to grow.
The full details of all the events and how to book can be found on the website at www.lovecharingcrossroad.com.
