We have moved next door and opened our new bookstore! 🎉


We now have our very own Kemps Events programme with plenty of interesting workshops and events of all kinds.

Of course we have all things 'Book' - signings, talks, readings but also plenty of non book related events such as crafting, food talks, demos and writing workshops, kids and seasonal events, special shopping sessions and many others.

Scroll through below and keep checking back or via our social media feeds for updates and new things. You could also sign up for our mailing list and we will mail you (not too often) with updates and news.

See all events on Eventbrite
