Why have your book event in Stow?

Stow of Wedale has excellent transport links (we think we’re the only independent bookshop in the Scottish Borders served by a railway station) meaning holding and attending events here that celebrate the written word is ideal. In addition to our bookshop, we have local caterers and facilities that can allow for events hosting from 2 to 176 guests (that’s the capacity of the main space in the Town Hall!). In addition to the town hall, we also have the beautifully refurbished and presented Station House.


The Tuesday Book Club.

We have two book groups (one meeting on the 2nd Tuesday and the other on the 3rd Tuesday of every month) hosted in the bookshop. Open to all 18+. 20% off each month’s chosen titles when you buy in-store – contact us or ask next time you pop in!
