UPFEST - 23 to 25 July - LIVE GRAFFITI


The Old Bookshop is proud to once again be a key paining venue for Upfest 2016. Visiting graffiti artist Dale Grimshaw will be working on a piece covering the entire side facade of our building throughout the weekend.

Follow the smell of Caribbean BBQ and stroll down lower North Street, pick up a beer or cocktail, watch the artwork unfold, and get involved in our Upfest Summer Party.

Live music from Cry Babies, Dry White Bones, Relay Rips, They Old Boots, King Solomon, Joe Probert, Dan Ashby, Harry and the Gondolas, Aaron Douglas.

Chefs Izzy and Irie will be cooking up a storm of freshly-made Caribbean cuisine, served tapas style. An authentic West Indies culinary experience backed by Roots N'Reggae DJs.


SUNDAY 7 AUGUST - Make Sunday Special


Lower North Street will be holding an extra special edition of Make Sunday Special, with the Bedminster alternative OIympics.

Here at The Old Bookshop, we'll have live music outside, cask ales, cocktails and Caribbean BBQ.
