I was on my way to Shoe Lane Library the other day to see the great Country & Western display case when I took a wrong turning and found myself in Red Lion Court and saw this great sign high up on the wall. It reads Alere Flammam (To feed the flame) and is the sign of Abraham Valpy an 1820’s printer and is also the building which was the original HQ of the scientific publishers Taylor & Francis/Richard & John E Taylor. It’s great what you find when you take a wrong turning! P
Here’s a great FREE event happening on Good Friday 18th April 2014. It’s the V&A Ska Garden Party featuring the excellent Gladdy Wax Sound System and the great Tighten Up Crew. It goes from 1pm until 5pm and costs a great big zilch and kids are more than welcomed, they are encouraged. You’ve no excuse, there’s enough time to get it in the diary!
It’s held outside in the middle of the V&A, the kids can run about and parents can sit and enjoy the good vibes in the (hopefully) nice weather! P

It must be a riot being a librarian in Shoe Lane.
I wish I worked in the library
I still haven’t given the country music a listen though. W
