The Decolonial Book Swap
Swap books written by and about the lives of people of colour (poc) from around the world: books that explore the topics of race, colonialism, gender, history, and culture, and books of fiction that centre the voices and experiences of poc.
There’ll be storytelling for children, discussions, and plenty of book swapping. Bring a book with you to swap if you can, and write a little note in it for the next reader!
For your visit
Food & Drink
The Royal Standard
The Royal Standard has re-opened under new management as a family-run pub that welcomes everybody, including children until 6pm.
A local fixture since 1901, this pub seems untouched since its post-war refurbishment. Step back in time and enjoy a pint over a game of darts.
Royal Victoria Gardens
These 19th-century pleasure gardens are still a delightful place to watch the river go by.
