Summer Bookshop Crawl 2022


As this is a multi location event, we are not running any in person events for this bookshop crawl, but we have several great online events planned!

All Weekend

Instagram Challenge

Share photos inspired by our daily prompts using #SummerBookshopCrawl & get to know your fellow bookshop crawlers. The prompts are: 

Fri 17th : Bookshop Crawl Selfie 

Literally what it says on the tin - show us your face and/or the faces of the people you'll be bookshop crawling with

Sat 18th : Out and About

Pictures of the places & bookshops you've visited please!

Sun 19th : Haul

Of course, we want to see what books you've bought. Show us your bookshop crawl haul please!

We are on Instagram @BookshopCrawlUK. Please feel free to tag us in your posts and stories.

Add a little extra element to your bookshop crawl weekend by downloading our fun scavenger hunt! 

Perfect for those bookshop crawling with kids or without as all of the prompts are accessible in many kinds of bookshops and encourage us all to have a little bit more fun. 

Download your scavenger hunt on a pay as you feel basis, all money goes to our brilliant designer who created this and all of our posters & leaflets for the last 7 years for free!
