Artsbeat November 2013 - Scrivener's & The Green Man Gallery

The brand new issue of Derbyshire's free Arts magazine - Artsbeat - is now to be had. It can be read online or if you prefer, and can find it, there is a full-colour 64pp paper version. Got my copy at Buxton Library but there are other places that stock it. It is pretty much a solo effort by Amanda Penman and is always marvelous.
A couple of Buxton stories in the new issue: a nice interview with Alastair Scrivener - his legendary bookshop stocks the mag of course. Alastair seemed to enjoy talking to Amanda and gives an interesting account of how he came to be a bookbinder.
Also an interview with Caroline Small - on behalf of The Green Man Gallery. Caroline is talking about how the Gallery is planning to survive for a second year (and we all hope much longer). You can, of course, support the Gallery by shopping there or attending any event or workshop that takes place. You might also consider becoming a Friend of the Gallery and giving £25. If you can afford it your kindness and generosity would be appreciated and rewarded. The Gallery is available on Mondays for hire for private events. It makes an interesting venue.
