An Antidote from Arcadia Uptown - Today

Should you find yourself in the district of London known locally as W1 today between the hours of 1pm and 6pm your most excellent company is called upon so that we may lose ourselves in Pale Ale and goodwill at The Social Christmas Market.

I shall be selling a specially selected quantity of Vintage Angling Printed Matter for the Soul.  You will be able to spend ironed bank notes and loose coin in small and large amounts on everything from John Richardson Linocut Christmas Cards to runs of old 1950's & 60's angling magazines & newspapers, from 1st Editions of Mr. Crabtree Goes Fishing to Ephemera from the early 20th Century, not to mention one or two surprise items.  In addition you will able to leave clutching a copy of the brand new issue of Caught by the River's new fanzine 'An Antidote to Indifference' which on this occasion I have had the honour of editing.

As if that wasn't enough of a temptation you will also find stalls by The Empress of Arcadia selling selected labels and bespokery, Caught by the River with their portable shop and the singer and artist Edwyn Collins.  Mr. Collins will also be playing impromptu songs on a guitar for your delight as the afternoon wears on.
