History And Facts
The Book Club launched Bookstock in 2011 as a standalone street festival event. Last year saw a packed lineup that included an explosive show from The Correspondents, Little Boots playing a bouncy party set, a pounding show from Tim Lawton (Filthy Dukes), Brass Roots playing classic after classic in their own inimitable style, a packed silent disco arena with the Disco Shed, fun and games with Musical Bingo, and a big song and dance from Sink the Pink, Swing Patrol and Electro Swing. And this time will be even bigger and better! The lineup is under wraps for now, but Bookstock 2012 looks set to take the street festival to the next level!
