Thank you! Thank you to Tim and Vicky (pictured right, with superstar, Claire) of Toys and Games of Worcester; proudly promoting the launch of Lacuna!
Tim and Vicky run a wonderful family business, interacting with the local community in all the best ways. Those local to Worcester will remember Toys and Games as ‘The Videodrome’ (and some of us still lovingly refer to it as such!). It is an treasure trove of fun for all the family and the curse of many a parent’s purse.
You can find Toys and Games on Broad Street, and I highly recommend a visit. As well as toys and games for all ages, Tim and Vicky also host a variety of events for Tenth Planet, where fans can meet their heroes.
I myself have met Jeremy Bullock (Boba Fet in Star Wars) and the sixth incarnation of Doctor Who, Collin Baker (both complete gentlemen and a delight to speak to) at this venue.
Toys and Games also run gaming nights for Pokémon, Yug hi oh (did I say that right?) and Magic the Gathering; and have an extensive selection of these trading cards, along with an impressive range of RPG material (thankfully, as so few outlets stock them these days!).
The best thing about Toys and Games is the service. You get that personal touch with a family business. Every visit is a genuinely pleasant experience.
Lacuna is launched at Drummonds in Worcester, on Sunday 14th Agust at 4PM. Come for the free cake, stay for the poetry and party after (and Baldy’ll sign a book!). Hosted by Black Pear Press, publisher of Lacuna, the launch will include readings from The Amazing Alan Durham, The Magnificent Mike Alma, Perfect Poet, Polly Stretton and Worcestershire Poet Laureate; Suz Winspear.
Also performing is Baldypoems mega-star, Kieran Davis and his son, Oscar (who will be reading his favourite Robert Louis Stevenson poem, ‘A Good Boy’). So excited!
