1930s Musicians and Entertainers of Tolworth, Berrylands and Surbiton – Alban Low

The area is dominated by orchestral musicians during the 1930s. The suburb was growing at this time, with railway stations opening at Berrylands (1933) and Tolworth (1938). It was the home of two of the greatest exponents of their respective instruments: Charles Draper (The Grandfather of English Clarinettists) and Jack Mackintosh (The Cornet King).

Discover the homes and lives of 1930s musicians who lived and worked in Tolworth, Berrylands and Surbiton. This book contains a map and short biographies, from famous residents to more forgotten names.

The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a
bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.

Flowers Won’t Grow – Karenjit Sandhu & SJ Fowler

A unique epistolary poetry collection and a collaborative feat of rare acumen, Flowers Won’t Grow contemplates mundanity and gratitude with a mix of polite curiosity and tender contempt. The lettered, prose-ish poems of Sandhu and Fowler speak to a luminous private public exchange, and the writeable unspeakables of a long London summer. These are playful, complex poems, of a city, of soap and fizzy water, of a search for commonality in quiet, of paper birds and hardened workers.

‘Exchanges, transfers and transferrals of intimacy and stark urgency – a
work of posed questions, thumbed noses and drawn blood’.
Eley Williams


‘This is a nurse’s attention on a knife edge. A pin-prick of address, a poem
that says “let’s get out of here” to and about itself. Everything is external,
but you can’t get outside, even if you don’t what to know what’s inside. It’s
a hostile take over of mundane objects and day-to-day experience in a
language that asks us to settle for fruit syrup but reaches beyond to the
universe’
Prudence Bussey-Chamberlain
