X, a kiss goodbye

As many of you may now know because of a large rent rise myself and Daniel have to move out of our space at Cambridge Heath Road at the end of April and X Marks the Bökship is closing.

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been involved with X Marks the Bökship up to this point, as a publisher, a visitor, a customer or friend. It has been fun.

Thanks also to the Arts Council and to the Elephant Trust for helping with funding for projects and to everyone who has supported the space in kind.

Answers to what am I going to do next are: I don’t know yet, have a little rest, make a book about the Bökship, do some pop ups and projects at other spaces, go on tour. I will keep you up to date.

If you are a publisher and you would like to collect any stock from me before I close get in touch to make arrangements or come and collect it between Thursday 17 – Thursday 24 April. 

With love
Eleanor X
