Barefoot Sling Meet – CANCELLED

Our Barefoot Books sling meets are now cancelled until the Autumn of 2015. See message from Barefoot Books below.

Dear Barefoot Friends,
Yesterday, a car reversed at speed into the wall of the studio, destroying the kitchen and causing structural damage to the building.

Thank you for your custom and we hope to re-open soon. Please look out for more news on Facebook and Twitter.

With best wishes,

The Barefoot Team, feeling very relieved that no-one was hurt.

We hope to return to the amazingness of Barefoot Books studio and storytellers cafe in due course.

INSTEAD of Barefoot Books, we are launching a brand new social gathering of sling wearing enthusiasts in a PLAYGROUND within Oxford!

Summer is here and therefore lets make use of all the light and leafyness that Oxford has to offer!
The day and location will change each month, however it will always be the fourth week of the month, so that those who are back at work can join us on varying days. We know that there are many brilliant playgrounds around Oxford. Please contact us if you know of an amazing playground with activities suitable for toddlers and babies who have head control (eg swings, slides, sandpit or little climbing areas).

See our Calendar for more details.

10am – 11am: Second breakfasts
11am – 11.30am: StoryTime (free)
11.30am – 12 midday: time to order some lunch before the rush!

 

How to Find Barefoot Books

Buses 2 and 2a from Oxford town centre, go towards Kidlington and stop in Summertown on the way. Barefoot Books is opposite a Sainsburys Local and next door to Majestic Wine Warehouse.

There is a large car park on Ferry Lane (for the Ferry Lane Sports Centre) connecting with Diamond Place car park and then it’s just about a five minute walk to Barefoot Books from there. Ferry Lane car park has more space and spaces and is only an extra 1-minute walk. We recommend this car park to you as Diamond Place is extremely busy all them time and with narrower spaces.

Parking prices are the same at both car parks:
0-1 hour £1.20,   1-2 hours £1.70,    2-3 hours £3.20,    3-4 hours £5.20

There is a slip road to one side of Banbury Road up the middle of Summertown. Sometimes there are a places to park for free for up to 1-hour. However, I can tell you that once you are inside the Barefoot Books studio and see and hear the colourful delights all around, one hour of parking is not enough!
