Foyles - The First 111 Years
At the end of May Foyles takes the historic next step in its journey, as we move out of the building that has been our home for 80 years and into the spectacular and iconic former Central Saint Martins College on Charing Cross Road. We take with us 350,000 books and our army of dedicated booksellers, but we also take 111 years of heritage and the memories of thousands of events and characters that have shaped our history.
At this pivotal moment for Foyles we have an irresistible opportunity to take a look back at the earlier chapters in the company's story, and as such we've delved into our archives to put together an exhibition of some of our most memorable and long-forgotten moments. Marvel at the legendary and sometimes notorious figures who have graced the Foyles Literary Luncheons, read a selection of the vast array of letters sent to the company over the last century (often moving, strange or witty, and sometimes far from complimentary) and have a glimpse into the inspiring and idiosyncratic past of a London landmark.
Venue: The Gallery, Foyles at Charing Cross Road - free entry.
Opening times: 9.30am - 5.30pm daily, 11.30am-6pm on Sundays
