Christmas Eve Candlelit Reading

This year our special Christmas event will be held on Saturday 23rd December at the usual time of 4pm in the bookshop. A truly magical event, we read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas by CC Moore, followed by Carol Ann Duffy's wonderful retelling of that traditional poem, Another Night Before Christmas. All the children will be given a home-made stocking stuffed full of goodies, and there's a glass or two of Prosecco for the adults.

The cost is £10 per child and all the money raised goes to the Shropshire run charity, Friends of Conakry Refugee School, the bookshop's chosen charity. Parents and grand-parents are very welcome. 

Pre-booking and payment is essential as this event always sells out, so please avoid disappointment and book soon - only 6 spaces left at the time of writing!

This is a very special event and many parents say it marks the start to their Christmas. We, the bookshop staff, love it.

(Please note you should arrive at 3.45pm so that we can get everyone in and settled for a 4pm start. Thank you!)
