Oxfam Pops Up at The Fossgate Social

“We’re popping up so you can pop in.”

On Thursday 28th and Friday 29th August Oxfam Books will be setting up shop at York’s new favourite haunt, The Fossgate Social. For two days only, Oxfam Petergate will be selling their books to the general public in a very special location: the latest addition to Fossgate’s food and drink scene.

Enjoy a cappuccino or a craft beer while browsing a hand picked selection of books as a one off by the local bookshop for summer 2014. There will also be live music from local musicians over both the days.

Lindsay Rose, Oxfam Books Volunteer said “We just want as many people as possible to get their hands on our great selection of books and help raise as much money for Oxfam as we can. We are big fans of The Fossgate Social here at the shop and thought it was the perfect atmosphere and setting for a pop-up event like ours.”

Running from 11am – 4pm on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th August, pop in to the Oxfam Pop Up at Fossgate Social for a drink, some live music and lots of literary gems.

Fall in love with books again

This Valentine’s weekend we are encouraging their customers to have a blind date with a book. To avoid judging the books by their covers they are all wrapped in plain paper with a few tantalising clues written on them to suggest their identity.

For a donation of two pounds we are hoping customers will fall for the inner beauty of the books. All money raised will go towards provide safe water for those who need it most.

From Thursday 13th February to Sunday 16th February
