Our Bookshop is closed over the festive period and January for our annual stock take. It reopens in February.

Students are eligible for 10% off all books if you are an Arnolfini student member (free to join). You will need your NUS card to qualify for membership.

If you work for an organisation or a school/college you can set up an account with us giving you a discount and free p&p. Email here to find out more.

Arnolfini Bookshop have their very own Book Club – running for the first time in Autumn 2016, we aim to look at unusual fiction and independent publishers. We meet monthly in the Arnolfini Café/Bar to share our thoughts on chosen titles and vote on the next month’s book.

Pop into the shop to ask a member of staff for more information or alternatively email us and check out our Facebook group (Arnolfini Bookclub) for details on books and upcoming events.
