The Book Club is good at street parties – if you made it to their Diamond Jubilee bash you’ll already know. But if you didn’t make that, you’ve now got a second chance. This Bank Holiday weekend, The Book Club is hosting another bigger and better street party: Bookstock. For all those born under the sign of Aquarius you will know that its inspired namesake made the history books as the ultimate festival – so they have set themselves quite a task. Sadly, it doesn’t look like the Stones will be making an appearance (too old anyway?) but there will be some amazing acts, food and fun for one last hooray to the summer months on August 26th.
First up is the Dub Pistols, who will be performing old and new music live. Also taking care of the music side of things are We Were Evergreen and The Bikini Beach Band – masters of surf noir pop covers. Or if it’s a rave you’re after, then how about a glo-in-the-dark neon 90s ping pong rave? (I’m sold already). There will also be tunes spun featuring Fleetmac Wood – a mashup of Fleetwood Mac re-edits. Finally, expect locally produced food and booze, plus prizes for best fancy dress. You couldn’t ask for much more, right? (Words: Laura Thornley)
