"​Zoe and Leon - Thanks so much for this, it was fantastic to have you in the bookshop, a real success" - Sheila O'Reilly, Events Manager at Village Books

Independent Bookshop Week 2017!

We were invited by two fabulous Indie Bookshops to record their customers' favourite book memories as part of Independent Bookshop Week celebrations.

We visited Village Books in Dulwich Village first and spoke to many wonderful people, including the shop owner Hazel, events manager Sheila, author John Gordon Sinclair & you may even hear a very special dog! As one little boy said, 'You're having a Party', we thought it was only fair to eat all the yummy treats the bookshop had set out for everyone!

Next up we visited Much Ado Books in Alfriston and while they plied us with prosecco and homemade lavender shortbread, we spoke to the likes of Jacqueline Wilson (!) and the delightful hen duo Frizzle & Little One...

We could get used to this...

Take a listen to both recordings and if you fancy our microphones in your shop next year, just get in touch: workshops@wordplayeducation.co.uk
