After a successful launch last year, the drinks brand is bringing back its pop-up book bar to central London. The bar will be open from 3-7 April, and will be hosting events to celebrate fiction written by women. 

The events programme aims to shine a spotlight on the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2017 shortlist and offer a series of inspiring events with writers including Sara Pascoe, Lisa McInerney, Nicci Gerrard, Diane Wei Liang, Val McDermid, Katy Brand, Louise Doughty and Kate Mosse.

A basement bar will be transformed into a literary haven, and guests are invited to enjoy their love of reading with the pleasure of Baileys. Visitors can use the bar as a space to relax, and sample the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist - announced on Monday 3 April - whilst enjoying Baileys treats and cocktails.

During lunchtimes, actors Tori Allen-Martin and James Rastall will bring each of the six shortlisted novels to life with exclusive readings. Each evening, the bar will come to life with book events featuring some of the UK’s most inspirational women and bestselling novelists.

Readers who purchase one of the shortlisted books will receive a complimentary Baileys to enjoy as they celebrate the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.

This weekend, bookshop Foyles is staging a Roald Dahl-themed event to celebrate British Science Week. In January, Fox hosted a 'Mutant Lounge' experience for the launch of new show Legion.
