A new year and a new leaf for Slightly Foxed . . .
We’ve loved having our bookshop on Gloucester Road.

Now our lease on the premises is coming to an end, and we’ve concluded that it’s time to seek pastures new. As of today (25 January 2016) Slightly Foxed on Gloucester Road is closed.
As to the future, we’ll be giving thought to other ways of continuing our bookselling activities, but for the time being we’ll be concentrating on Slightly Foxed itself and all that goes with it, and on our book publishing programme. Watch this space!
