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
The bookshop started and runs Woodstock Poetry Festival, a completely independent festival that has now been running for 7 years.

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

Temporary Closure from Monday 16 March 2020

I have decided very sadly to shut the bookshop from tomorrow because of the increasing danger to staff and customers from the corona virus. Many of our customers are elderly, and we would not like to be responsible for spreading the virus in the community. I will be in the shop during the day to receive books already ordered by customers and will be happy to deliver them or give them to you if you call in for them. Also, if you would like any books to keep you company during the next few weeks or month, tomorrow is the time to come and collect them.
I am very sad about having to take this decision. Hopefully we can reopen as soon as it becomes safe for everyone. In the meantime please take care of yourselves. Very best wishes from me and the rest of the staff here -
Rachel
