Our Staff

Paul Wallace
David's Owner & Manager

Owner of David's Books, Music & Cafe. Paul sources nearly all the new, bargain & remainder books, as well as the secondhand and antiquarian books. He also runs the events programme.

Liz Wallace
David's Owner & Cafe Manager

Liz owns David's along with Paul, and manages the new and busy cafe. She enjoys working with the friendly cafe team, and making sure the cafe provides the very best locally sourced fresh food, and wonderful rich coffees.

Andy Oaten
Music Shop Manager

Andy is the manager and has worked at the shop for longer than you could possibly imagine. Unless you can somehow imagine longer than 24 years. He goes all weak at the knees if you mention The Smiths or Morrissey but don't think he's just an 80s indie loving dandy - he knows most things about most kinds of music, including classical & jazz. In fact, rumour has it he actually invented music.

Melanie Butt
Deputy Manager / Card Buyer

Melanie has been at David's since 1995 and knows all there is to know about its workings. The great range of individual cards, paper, notebooks and calendars is down to her!

Ashlie Green
Assistant Music Shop Manager

Ashlie 'beatz n pieces' Green is Andy's right-hand man. But she's a girl. Music-wise she's all about cacophonous walls of noise, sixties pop gems, psychedelic nuggets of days gone by and actually, anything else you've got. She's also obsessed with Simon Neil & photography, if you ever need an ice breaker.

Kai Savage
Children's Book Buyer & Game Buyer

Kai not only manages our fantastic children's book area, he also selects our wide range of board games and role-playing supplies.

Jack Cooper
Bookseller & Secondhand Book Buyer

Jack is a friendly fellow who is happy to help you get the book that you need. If you have some books to sell he is also able to take a look at them and hopefully buy some!

Nicky Meredith-Hardy
Secondhand & Antiquarian book orders

Nicky catalogues and despatches secondhand and antiquarian books, mostly online. If you see a book you like on our secondhand list, she's the one to ask.

Sally Hewitt
Marketing & Events Manager

Sally is our event co-ordinator and marketer extraordinaire!
