Our next author event

Matt Haig will be in the Bookshop talking about his latest novel How to Stop Time. Available in paperback in December, it was the fiction winner of this year's Books Are My Bag Readers Awards - the only awards voted for by readers.
Tickets are available at the shop for £8.00 or can be bought on our website for £8.50.
We stock an extensive range of carefully chosen new adult and children's books.
Our experienced staff are always available to offer advice, and help you to find the very best books.
If we don't have what you're looking for in stock, we can order many books for collection the following day.
As well as books we sell beautiful and unusual greetings cards and wrapping paper.
We host regular events with a variety of speakers. During half-terms and holidays we often run free children's activities.
In our small and peaceful cafe we serve delicious homemade cakes, and hot and cold drinks.
We welcome browsers, families, well-behaved dogs, teachers, gift-buyers, passers-by and readers of every kind.
