Bookshop Events

Events play a big part in our life here at Simply Books and we love hosting them! From our regular events in the bookshop to visits from best-selling authors and our monthly Simply Cinema – there’s something for everyone!

‘Whether it’s a “meet the author” event, ‘Coffee & Conversation’ get together; or Simply Cinema – Simply Books is my welcoming go-to source of entertainment, interest and good company” – Lynda N
