Housmans Vaults Expansion

1. An appeal for our Vaults expansion


This November, we’ll be celebrating Housmans Bookshop’s 70th Birthday, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everybody that has supported us over the years. Housmans is now embarking on an ambitious project to expand the shop into the basement of our building – an area known as The Vaults. 

We want to use the improved space downstairs to expand our fiction and arts section, which in turn will give more room for us to develop our politics sections upstairs, meaning more books suited for all your needs!  

Why we need your help

We’ve already raised £20,000 towards this project, but will still need a little more to guarantee its success. There are a lot of set-up costs associated with the expansion, and to make sure we can do it properly, we still need to raise some extra funds. 

Please click on the link to find out more, and to make a donation – even the smallest amount would be a great help.


Rewards for making a donation include a special 20%-off  Housmans Supporters discount card.
Thank you so much!

2. Competition: Tell us your book recommendations for our new sections – win a £50 Housmans voucher!

As part of our expansion into The Vaults there will be new and expanded sections on both floors. We would particularly welcome your input into possible stock recommendations for these sections.

-Political Sci-Fi/Speculative Fiction
-Political Literary Fiction

-Black Politics/Anti-racism
-Childrens & Young Adult
-Political Poetry

Please email any recommendations of titles – ideally in print please! – to housmans@outlook.com with RECOMMENDATIONS in the subject title, and one lucky entry will win one of our soon-to-be-printed Housmans gift vouchers, with a value of £50!
