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.

Woodstock Poetry Festival 2017 - 10-12 November

The programme for this year's Woodstock Poetry Festival is almost finalised - poets who have agreed to come so far include:

Douglas Dunn, who is reading from The Noise of a Fly, his first collection since the publication of Elegies
George Szirtes
Jim Carruth
Anne Stevenson
Caroline Bird
Keith Jarrett
David Harsent

One or two people have yet to confirm.

It is wonderful that such brilliant poets are happy to support an independent bookshop by participating in our festival and we are very grateful to them.

People who works there are some of the sweetest people I've met. Save yourself some time and just go there. Everyone at New York event venues is sweet and ask how you've been, even though normally staff keep their heads down.
