Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop

The shop opened in May 2008 and is on the main road in Woodstock, just next to the bus stop. We can supply most books to order by the next day and have several thousand books in stock: to order books ring or email the shop. We have a large selection of children's books and are happy to advise and recommend. We can also supply second-hand and out-of-print titles. We offer discounts for school orders and for book clubs and have a free local delivery service.

We were on the regional shortlist for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009, 2013 and 2017, and listed in the recent Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

BOOK GROUPS
Two monthly book groups take place at the bookshop - a poetry group, initially formed to read collections submitted for the annual T S Eliot Prize and now following a slightly wider brief; and a book group focusing more on fiction. Both are open to everyone but occasionally space is limited - please contact us for details.

BOOKSHOP TALKS
We hold a series of informal talks and readings throughout the year. If you buy any book at the talk the cost of the ticket will be deducted. Please ring or email to book a place - early booking advisable.

The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.

Jamie McKendrick






We had a full shop last night for Jamie McKendrick's reading. He read some unpublished poems, as well as poems from Embrace, his new translations of Magrelli, and from Crocodiles and Obelisks. He also read from See How I Land, the collaboration between Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre and Asylum Welcome. There is another chance to hear some of the writing from this book on Monday 23rd November from 7-9 pm at the Quaker Centre in St Giles - free entry. For details see http://www.asylum-welcome.org/.
