Special Events

One-off Events

We organise many one-off events throughout the year, such as book launches, talks, workshops, readings and performances. Most are held at the bookshop, but when we need a bit more space we decamp to outside venues such as the Wenlock Pottery (perfect for cosy, candlelit evenings) and the Edge Arts Centre.

In 2014, we even filled the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury with an evening of poetry featuring the Poet Laureate Dame Carol Ann Duffy, the National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke and Shropshire’s very own Liz Lefroy.

Why not subscribe to our newsletter to be amongst the first to know when we’ve got something special planned?

Wenlock Christmas Fayre

Join the throng as thousands of visitors descend on Much Wenlock for its annual Christmas Fayre. With stalls extending down the High Street and onto the church green, mulled wine, carols by candlelight in the Square, brass bands, street entertainers, donkey rides and more, the town is filled with seasonal goodwill. We always make a special effort to join in the fun, with treats and merriment for customers old and new.
