It's almost that time of year again. As the intelligent locals you all are, I'm sure you know that whilst Cheltenham Race Week sucks if you are a resident who doesn't have a spare room to rent out, a catering business that can crank out a huge fry up, or indeed someone who loves horse racing - it also brings a considerable amount of tourist money to the area and is generally great for local commerce.
That said, it does make getting to work a bit of nightmare for me and tends to mean that most of the locals go into a self-imposed exile. Our very own Kate Townshend spoke of her dislike for Race Week last year in fact and I have to say I agree with her!
With this in mind, this year (and probably every successive year from now on), I'm going to change my opening times for Race Week. Hopefully, this gives you plenty of notice!
That particular week sees some great releases including the new deluxe hardback of Frank Miller's Batman Year One, part one of the 'Secrets Of The Indigo Tribe" storyline in Green Lantern, the first hardback for the Games Of Thrones comic adaptation, Transformers UK Classics Vol 2 TP, Avengers Assemble #1, the first issue of Paul Cornell's Saucer Country, Atomic Robo Real Science Adventures #1 and the eagerly awaited Saga #1. So it is worth popping in, even with the reduced hours.
It will be business as usual on Saturday 17th and from then on until Easter.
See you soon!
