Happy New Year!

 Happy new year to you all! 

Jolly glad to see the back of 2020, however, we start 2021 under tier 4 so sadly we will remain closed for January. 

I will do my best to provide a request and collect service for those in need under tier 4 restrictions but it will be a slower process than our usual fast order service. 

Please do get in touch with us preferably via email help@beckenhambooks.com or use  https://uk.bookshop.org/shop/beckenhambookshop

If you have an order ready to collect or due in January I will be in touch to arrange a solution. 

Thank you for your patience with us at this strange time. 

Stay safe and keep reading!

Local art shout out!

 So, this might backfire horribly but, if you are a local author or artist or creator and you have something to promote and you have a flyer or a poster max A4 size, stick it thru the #bookshop door and tomorrow I'll go stick them all in our #window

 This could be veeeeeeeeery interesting....
