Candlelit Christmas Eve Reading

This event books up very quickly - please contact us if you'd like a place for your child/children.

On Christmas Eve as darkness falls, the upper floor of the bookshop will fill with wide-eyed children and their families to hear 3 gorgeous Christmas poems. The reading will be by candlelight, it will be magical, and beautiful. 

The cost is £10 per child (adults free), to include a hand-made, gift-filled red felt stocking for every child, and a delicious glass of bubbly for the adults. Every penny taken goes to support the work of the Friends of Conakry Refugee School: a Shropshire-based charity, which was founded by Ruth Walmsley, a former member of staff here at the bookshop. This will be the thirteenth year that we have celebrated the spirit of Christmas in this way.

The shop closes for Christmas at 5 pm.
