What does your business do?
Pickled Pepper Books is a specialist children’s bookshop, cafe and events space. We offer a variety of different activities for parents and children.
Every Monday we run after school book clubs for 8 to 12 year-olds and for teenagers. It is for any keen readers eager to discuss and review the newest (and sometimes the oldest) books on offer. Titles chosen for the group are bought directly from our shop.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays we run Young Illustrators art classes, open for those aged between 5 and 12. They encourage children to let their imagination and creativity run wild through illustration workshops. These workshops range from pop up books, designing comic strips, layered landscapes, character design, and typography.
During the week, we also runs a variety of baby and toddler events. These include creative drama classes, story related craft activities, a baby massage and yoga class, French and Spanish preschool sessions combining play, word games, stories and singing for carers, their babies and toddlers.
At weekends the emphasis is on family downtime. We invite authors and illustrators into the shop to bring their books to life and host touring theatre companies running small scale children’s shows. These shows offer everything from baby sensory theatre to spoken word for older children.
Lastly Pickled Pepper Books runs story-based birthday parties, ideal for children between the age of 4 and 9. These parties are available in a multitude of themes. Science-themed parties, ideal for children between the age of 5 and 11, run in partnership with Kids with Brains.
We also work with a variety of schools, to provide school supplies (including reading lists for classrooms, Accelerated Readers and Guided Reading selections, and book surgeries at parents evenings), and organise author visits for all ages.
