ONE OF OUR FIRST CUSTOMERS FROM THE EIGHTIES BECOMES HEAD COACH FOR ENGLAND CRICKET


Chris Silverwood had just turned 12 years old when we opened our 1st Bookshop at Garforth near Leeds, West Yorkshire, in May 1987.

As one of our very first customers, sport books were his preference in non fiction!

A big customer too in our Stationery Department, buying all his school requisites for Garforth Comprehensive.

I remember as if it were yesterday, a month or maybe more, sharing his excitement in 1993 when he made his debut as a right arm fast bowler for Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

Myself Roger and everyone else here, wish him all the very best for his continuing career success!

LONDON TO HAVE MORE THEATRES

People come from all around the world to enjoy theatre in London. But there are other cities with far more theatre buildings. The authoritative Theatres Trust reckons there are currently 263 theatres in London. It's about the same number as Tokyo, whereas Paris has around 350. New York tops the list with well over 400. However, London's numbers are now expected to increase:

'BBC ARTICLE : WHY IS LONDON REALLY GETTING MORE THEATRES?'

At the time of writing this month's blog, the following have already newly opened in London: 'BRIDGE THEATRE' / 'CANADA WATER THEATRE' / TROUBADOUR WEMBLEY PARK THEATRE / TROUBADOUR WHITE CITY THEATRE' all of which will accept our Theatre Token Gift Cards!

BOOKSELLER CELEBRATING 45 YEARS

On 2nd September 2019 our founder Roger Bernard Crossland will celebrate 45 years as a Bookseller. On that day in 1974 at the age of 16, he started working for W H Smith (Wholesale) Limited, at Wellington Bridge Industrial Estate, Leeds. He then went on to open his 1st Bookshop (with the help of his parents) in Garforth, Leeds, during May 1987. Although that Main Street Store has now closed, it remains to be run online successfully by him today. In 1999 Roger was the very first person in the world to sell Book Tokens via the internet and currently he and his partner, with their business The Token House Partnership, are the leading independent supplier of National Book Tokens and National Theatre Tokens, to businesses, schools, colleges and universities, plus the general public, across the globe. They constantly offer the consumer more free Book Token gift card designs than anywhere else online. Also most books are cheaper than Amazon, when paying in full online by credit card or debit card at their 'books etc' area within firstbookshop.com : Read 'Our Story' here -
