Mostly Yeah Baby and Books

July 7, 2013

Mark from Mostly Books tweeted at the start of the day “In #Abingdon today? Three things: outdoor swimming pool, free music fest in the market square and author takeover at @MostlyReading.”

Outdoor swimming pool was doing well. I sometimes go early on Saturday and nobody else is there. Today it was popular. No pictures of that. But there are some of Mark’s other two events.

The ‘Yeah Baby’ free music event attracted some stars. Micky Mouse gave it the big thumbs up.

The trees were blooming pom-poms, and lots of band were playing to help raise money for the charities that Yeah-Baby supports.

There were also the ‘Yeah Baby’ cakes.

‘Mostly Books’ had cakes too as three authors took over the shop for the day. Paula Harrison, one of the authors, is seen here having a break from working in the shop. Paula writes about the Rescue Princesses.

Another author, F.R.Hitchcock, is seen here selling her own book ‘The Trouble with Mummies’ – one of the perks of the job.

Mark has more to say about the event on the Mostly Books Blog.

    Well, no-one seems to have commented so I shall start the ball rolling. It was a super day in town and the atmosophere was very good. I am glad to see that so many enthusiastic people attended. Many thanks to all of the people who worked so hard for this event and much applause for all the performers. Well done.

    Abingdon is a great place to do things and see things. So many times already this year we have seen the streets and parks packed with people having a great time in our lovely town.

    Perhaps everyone can focus on this and complain a little less about the shops?

    It was indeed a great weekend. I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the Yeah Baby event which seems to get better every year.
