Murdock Barbers

We are always interested to see new retailers or different approaches to the high street experience and on the Millican blog we spotted Murdock, a traditional men’s barber in Covent Garden on Monmouth Street.

Taking the traditional barbers services a stage further by retailing accessories and apparel is a great idea. Next time we are passing we’ll be in for a trim and a spot of shopping.

Ladybird books app + Charles Tunnicliffe


We recently saw the new iPad app for the classic Ladybird books. This reminded us that Ladybird illustrator Charles Tunnicliffe was born a stones throw from our offices in Macclesfield and as well as this famous series of books, also illustrated “Tarka the Otter” and many others. He eventually moved from Macclesfield to Anglesey and spent the rest of his life there until his death in 1979.
