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 AND BOOKSHOP TALKS
are both suspended during the pandemic. We hope to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.
WOODSTOCK POETRY FESTIVAL
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.

Poetry and Jazz at the Albion Beatnik
Dennis Harrison at the Albion Beatnik bookshop on Walton Street, Jericho, has organised the most extraordinary month of nightly poetry and jazz events during November, with some of the same poets who are reading at the Woodstock Festival and many who aren't. The list of readings is too long to print in full but if you click here you should go through to their website. If you haven't been to the bookshop yet, you should - he has an excellent selection of unusual books and also serves tea, coffee and cakes. His opening hours are rather more evening than ours - usually 11-11 - and he always has good jazz playing.
