We are pleased to announce that Stephen Booth will be joining us on Sunday 23rd July from 3.00pm until 5.00pm for an informal book signing event to celebrate the release of his new book, Dead in the Dark. We have copies of the new book, as well as his old favourites, available to buy in store. We hope you to see you then.
These excellent railway books were published originally by Greg Fox, a lovely man who worked on railway-related projects all his life, prior to his serious illness a few years ago.
These stand alongside the best railway titles ever published, and are an ongoing testament to his dedication to detail and enduring love of railways.
Foxline Books are now on sale at High Peak Bookstore and Café for just £9.99, with an excellent selection to choose from.
Join us for a Spring Bank holiday celebration on the weekend of Saturday 27th May until Monday 29th May.
We’re celebrating our transformation from ‘Bookstore Brierlow Bar’, to ‘High Peak Bookstore and Café’, with a long weekend of events.
There’s Ferret Racing outside, where you can watch the fur fly with the added bonus of ‘Ferret Roulette’, throughout the weekend.
On Sunday 28th at 2.30pm, we’re presenting the choral harmonies of ‘The Village Choir’ with performances by Mike Hansford and Samantha Plumbley, with a selection of Middle Earth music written by Donald Swann and J.R.R Tolkein.
This music includes songs such as ‘The Road Goes Ever On’, ‘Upon the Hearth the Fire is Red’, ‘In the Willow-Meads of Tsarinan’, ‘In Western Lands’, ‘Namárie’ and ‘Sit Beside the Fire’.
You can also experience wildlife such as the unique Harris Hawk, which is the only bird of prey to hunt in family groups.
Other attractions include Face Painting, and a great selection of snacks and light meals from our new café kitchen. Plus, of course as always we have a fabulous selection of highly affordable, great quality books to browse.
So call in and help us celebrate! We look forward to seeing you.
Our lovely new kitchen is now open. It's been added to the coffee shop so that we can prepare light meals, including hot paninis, sandwiches, quiches and more. The emphasis is very much on home-made, we're making our own pesto, dressings, salads, soups, etc.
Initially the kitchen will be serving between midday and 3pm. However we do plan to extend these hours in the future to serve breakfasts and teas.
During and outside of these hours you'll still be able to enjoy our freshly ground Fair Trade coffee, award winning loose leaf teas, milkshakes and soft drinks, as well as a selection of sweet treats such as our delicious cakes and cookies.
The coffee shop closes half-an-hour before the bookshop, so at 5.00pm during the week, and 4.30 on Sundays.
