Civilised Saturday

Everyone is invited to join us for Civilised Saturday on 28 November at Wenlock Books!

After such a successful Books Are My Bag day back in October, we are really looking forward to enjoying some relaxed bookish gift-buying on Civilised Saturday as the perfect antidote to the Black Friday madness offered in many shops!

There are so many beautiful books out this season so it won’t be hard for you to choose the perfect Christmas presents for your family and friends. But, just in case, Susie will be on hand with her extensive knowledge of our stock to provide a free gift-matching service.

We are also offering a complimentary gift-wrapping service using beautiful locally-sourced wrap. Our apprentice Jasmine has been practising her Tiffany bows for weeks! 

Upon arrival every customer will be welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and at 3 o’clock, our cosy second-hand section will provide the backdrop for a very civilised afternoon tea, with pots of Assam, freshly brewed coffee and a selection of home-made winter-themed cupcakes.

For an extra bit of sparkle, we’ll be putting up our Christmas decorations a few days before Civilised Saturday. Add some live, mellow music from one of our favourite local musicians to entice people in from the cold, and it should be a fabulous and festive day!

Everything is free - come along and enjoy!
