We will be snuggling up in our cosy reading corner to read some wintery tales, as well as singing our favourite songs and rhymes.

Come and join us this Friday 6th January 2017

‘Tis the season to be… civilised


Come and enjoy a more relaxed Christmas shopping experience at Urmston Bookshop this year – on Saturday 26th November we are even hosting our very own Civilised Saturday.

We will be serving you mince pies and mulled wine while you browse our collections of books and gifts in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of your local bookshop.
There will be free gift wrapping on anything you buy, just to make your Christmas shopping that bit more hassle free.

And don’t forget to make time for yourself this Christmas… drop off your order list for all the books you want in your stocking and we will fast-track it to Santa.
Tired of that sinking feeling when you unwrap another pair of socks from Granny?  Leave your Christmas Wish List with us, then tell your friends and family to come down and choose something from it that you really want this year.  They don’t even have to live close by, we can take orders by email or phone too.
