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.

are both suspended during the pandemic. We hope to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.

Pam Ayres

Thursday November 14, 5.30pm, St Mary Magdakene Church, £10.
Pam Ayres will be reading from her latest poetry collection, You Made Me Late Again! Pam's poems are observant, witty and poignant in equal measure - her subjects are the everyday and the universal. Most of the poems in You Made Me Late Again! are brand new, and it also features several favourites from her stage shows, published here for the first time, such as 'The Make-Up Lady' and 'Tippy Tappy Feet'.

Pam Ayres has been a writer, broadcaster and entertainer for nearly forty eyars since winning the talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1975, and she has become an audience favourite for her sharp perception of the comic detail of everyday life. She is the author of several bestselling poetry collections and a memoir, The Necessary Aptitude. Pam and her husband have lived in Gloucestershire for over twenty-fice years, where they have a smallholding with cattle, sheep, bees, chickens and guinea fowl. She was awarded the MBE in 2004.
