2020 sees the Jarrold company celebrate its 250th birthday.
To mark this milestone anniversary and hear the story behind a limited edition new book that traces the history of the Jarrold company, join us for a very special evening in the company of Caroline Jarrold and local writer Pete Goodrum.
Given unfettered access to the Jarrold archives, Pete Goodrum’s ‘Jarrold 250 Years: A History’ is the first written history of the company in almost a century. Spanning seven generations of this family enterprise the book tells the story from the early days when John Jarrold opened a small shop in Woodbridge, Suffolk, to the thriving 21st century business it is today.
Caroline and Pete will be in conversation with Jarrold’s former book buyer, Chris Rushby.
Tickets £5. Available online via Eventbrite or instore at Customer Services, floor 2.
