Torbay Weekly

The Bookery in Crediton has been named South West England winner in the 2022 Independent Bookshop of the Year.

The Crediton bookshop, community-owned since 2013, has a huge programme of events and community out-reach activities.

The nine regional and country winners are now in contention for the overall Independent Bookshop of the Year Award, announced at the British Book Awards winner ceremony to be held at Grosvenor House in London on Monday, May 23. The overall Independent Bookshop of the Year winner will also compete to be crowned Book Retailer of the Year.

The Bookery will be up against regional winners from the East of England, the North, London, the Midlands, the South-East, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The award is a great opportunity to celebrate both local businesses as well as the resurgence of independent bookshops on the whole, so we hope it’s something that you would consider covering.
