By the time David Drummond arrived in Cecil Court in 1967 his leaning towards the theatre meant his book shop had expanded into the realms of memorabilia and literature associated with the performing arts. That focus remains today and the shop is crammed with famous performers of the past, old theatrical postcards and programmes. Second hand books for sale on the performing arts include theatrical history and biography, conjuring, circus and all forms of light entertainment.
