Whether you want to come to an event, join a group or find an unusual or inspirational gift it’s all here - and every book you could possibly want is just a visit, e-mail or phone call away.

When you step inside Simply Books we want you to discover treasures and surprises that you won’t find on Amazon and for you to feel part of our vibrant community - an experience you’ll never have just buying online. So do come and spend time with us in the shop too.
Gift a Book this Christmas
This Christmas we are launching our own Gift a Book scheme - teaming up with a couple of local charities (Salford Women’s Aid and Wood Street Mission) so that even children in the most difficult circumstances find a book in their stocking this Christmas!
Victoria and Abdul (PG)
Friday 29th December at 7.00pm
Venue: Centrepoint, Bramhall Methodist Church
Info: Judi Dench and Eddie Izzard star in this period drama about the unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria and a young Indian clerk Abdul Karim. A fascinating and touching film with a remarkable lead performance the Dame herself!
Ticket Price: £7.00
Just pick a book, or ask us to choose one with you and pay at the till. If you can’t make it into the shop yourself just give us a call and we’d be delighted to sort out a donation with you over the phone.
Then the magic Simply Books Bookshop Elves will take the book, wrap it up and send it to its new home, ready to be opened and treasured on Christmas Day!
