Visit our Showroom

When?

We hold regular public open days which allow you to come and pick books direct from our showroom shelves. Due to Covid-19 we are limiting the number of visitors per session and therefore ask you to book in your visit. Full details at the bottom of this page.

We also welcome visits from teachers, childcare providers and group leaders through out the year by appointment- to book a time to pop in simply email sally@booksforbugs.co.uk

Where?

Building 7, Vantage Point Business Village, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, GL17 0DD

Once you come into Vantage Point go past the gate house (give security a wave!) then follow the road around you will come to a large car park and a tall building with a glass lift at the front. This is the building you want! Come up the stairs or ramp into the foyer and through the double doors. We are at the end of the corridor. Signage will be up during out open days.

Payments taken

We accept cash or card payments and receipts can be provided at time of purchase.

We will also accept cheques from schools and official groups but sadly no longer accept cheques from individuals.

Children and disabled visitors

Our new showroom is on the ground floor and has full disability access.

There is a ramp for wheelchair/pushchair access but we also have a couple of disabled spaces at the rear of the building which leads straight into the showroom so if you need to park a little closer please get in touch and we will reserve a space for you.

Children of all ages are welcome to visit, after all we wouldn’t have a business without them! But ask that parents please supervise children at all times. Forklifts maybe operating near the car park and there are other businesses within our building using pallet trucks and such like. Inside our warehouse its quite child friendly and we do have a small play area.

Showroom open days and Covid 

To allow for a socially distanced shopping experience we are requesting you book a slot to visit. We will have a maximum of 10 families in at one time. Each slot is for a 1 hour shopping time.

Please book 1 (free) ticker per family (Max 2 adults)

Masks must be worn by all adults attending (unless of course medically except) and hand sanitiser is provided on entry. We kindly request that if at any time in the 48hrs before your visit you have a temperature or any symptoms of a cold, particularly Covid-19 to please reschedule your visit to help protect our staff and other attending families.

If you think you would need longer than an hour to shop or require a quieter visit please do get in touch by contacting Lynne at admin@booksforbugs.co.uk who will happily work to meet your needs.

We will add more dates if these all book out.

You can book your session here

 

Previous Events

Science Week!

We had a great time this warehouse open day celebrating Science week. We had all our usual books available plus a large range of science and STEM books all still available at just £2.50 each. To get hands on with science we also had some fun activities running which everyone was welcome to join in with- these included making a paperclip float on water, making cress heads and even getting an egg inside a bottle! A big well done to Bugs 1 and 3 who not only planned the experiments but also did shows and got people involved. One of my favourite open days so far!

      

Taken over by Stormtroopers!

What an incredible day! The Gloucestershire Stormtroopers were fantastic so much fun was had by all, parents and children!

And it just so happened to be one of the Stormtroopers birthdays which couldn’t go unmarked.. I mean where else would you go and get to buy bargain books and sing happy birthday to a Stormtrooper!!
