If you are at a loose end this evening.....
....where better to be than at Arthur Beale's cool basement celebrating the launch of our brand new Rope Reference Catalogue! It will be a very ropey evening indeed. You can collect your new Rope Reference Catalogues whilst sipping a very special rum punch. I say "special" because I know the ingredients are rum, cane syrup and lime juice and I know the ratio is 3,2,1 but I'm not sure which order they are in. By the way, the rum will be Fair Transport Rum which was sailed across the Atlantic on...

Arthur Beale Rope Reference Catalogue Launch 20th July

To celebrate our new Rope Reference Catalogue we are going to have a mini celebration! We've a fine bottle of Fair Transport Rum which has arrived in the UK under sail alone - via the Atlantic by the tall ship Tres Hombres and the final North Sea leg in my little Vertue. We will be serving tots in our basement (plus a few beers) and handing out copies of the catalogue with staff on hand to discuss all things "Ropey".

Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Finished!

Our New Rope Reference Catalogue is Finished!
Ok, its true we were hoping to have it ready for Beale Park but one thing and another got in the way and that didn't quite happen. In any case we haven't had one for 400 years so why rush it now! However we are on the cusp of going to print just a few things to tidy up and we will press the button. Its not a boring price list but an informative catalogue laid out in chronological order with the natural fibres at the begining and ending with Technora and the technical blends. There is a section...

Beale Park Boat and Outdoor Show 2017 is over!

It was lovely to see you all there over the weekend. As always it was a very relaxed affair and this year we had glorious weather too - amazingly it rained only at night and was sunny all day. It was a great opportunity to chat to the boatowners about paints and ropes and to catch up on any marine gossip. In the evening we had a refreshing swim in the river on one night and a row to the Swan Pub on another night so it wasn't all hard work. Now it's time to finish our new rope catalogue which goes to print next week. I'd better get on with it.

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe
It's nice and cold and there is a bit of drizzle in the air so it must be time for the Scandi Market! You won't get cold there because you can warm up with mulled wine and hot chocolate and there are so many people that you can huddle like penquins or musk oxen. However, if you still feel a bit nippy then call in at the Arthur Beale stand for a spendid new Norwegian classic pullover or set of merino expedition quality merinos. It is a great atmosphere and it is the perfect way to get a bit of...
