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
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.

WOODSTOCK POETRY FESTIVAL
This year (November 9-11) is the 7th Woodstock Poetry Festival - organised entirely by the bookshop. Full details below.

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

Marshmallows for Martians - party to celebrate National Bookstart Week

Please join Adam and Charlotte Guillain at The Woodstock Bookshop on Sunday 8 June at 4pm for the launch of their latest book, Marshmallows for Martians -


- which follows the further adventures of George (from their first book, Spaghetti with the Yeti). The book is aimed at 2/3-6 year olds – the reading is for children with their parents (no unaccompanied children please!). Each child should bring a cushion - our floor is hard.
 

The event is free and also celebrates the start of National Bookstart Week – bring a favourite book, something you have read many times, to recommend to the other children. Once Adam and Charlotte have shown you Marshmallows for martians we will read some of your favourite choices. 

Please let us know if you're planning to come - 01993 812760 or info@woodstockbookshop.co.uk
