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.

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 and Wootton Village Hall also hold excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their websites for further details.

Posy Simmonds May 10th Woodstock Town Hall

We had a great evening at Woodstock Town Hall on Friday 10th May to celebrate the shop's 5th birthday. Posy Simmonds gave a talk on 'Making Faces', showing us how she built up characters and then how she plans the comic strips and books. It was magical watching her draw on the screen - and extraordinary to see how much research and preparation goes into everything she does. The photos are slightly dark but give some idea of the atmosphere... We finished the evening with wine and chat - and my mother fainted, which led to a dramatic entry by two very efficient and yellow-clad paramedics from an ambulance - she is absolutely fine, thank goodness...
