When you step inside Lamplight, we want you to catch your breath, to hang out, to burrow in among the book stacks or to sit and read in a pocket of courtyard-sun. Above all, we want you to feel the joy of being around good books.
We’re independent and we curate our books to serve our neighbourhood. We love the challenge of getting the right book into the right hands.
We host all kinds of events. From book launches to book clubs – anything you can think of. Let us know what you have in mind and we will make it happen. Fifty can fit comfortably in the shop but, by spilling out into the courtyard, you can easily double the invite list. We’re lucky to be surrounded by restaurants who are happy to feed a crowd. We’ll rustle up the glasses and cups of tea in our tiny kitchen.
You’ll find information on any upcoming events, like lunchtime clubs and Sunday courtyard readings, through our newsletters or our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
10-5 MONDAY TO FRIDAY
