We had a very good evening as you might be able to tell from the photos taken by Kathryn from Tower Poetry on her mobile. The top one shows, left to right, me, Peter McDonald, David Morley and Stephen Franks (a customer and member of the audience) and the bottom one shows David Morley reading. Peter and David had spent the day judging entries for the Tower Poetry prize, a prize for 16-18 year olds. It was great that they were able to come on and read to us - do look out for their poems if you haven't come across them before - Enchantment, by David Morley and Torchlight by Peter McDonald.
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 Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.
BOOK GROUPS AND BOOKSHOP TALKS
are both suspended during the pandemic. We hope to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.
WOODSTOCK POETRY FESTIVAL
The bookshop started and runs Woodstock Poetry Festival, a completely independent festival that has now been running for 8 years.
The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.
