Celebrating their 50th anniversary in Brighton
On Saturday 17th September, as part of Heritage Open Day, QueenSpark Books will be at the Regency Townhouse, Brunswick Square, from 11am-3.30pm. To celebrate their 50th anniversary, they will bring all of their 110+ books out of the archive, for visitors to handle and have a look-through.
Visitors can also see and buy their new book ‘Telling Tales of Brighton & Hove’. These are stories of protest, pubs, hardship, LGBTQ rights, cinema-going and clubbing, Black history, strikes, migration, and having a cup of tea and feature some of the people and places that have made Brighton & Hove what it is today.
They will also have a book stall with a selection of some of older titles at specially discounted prices.
