Welcome to the Big Green Bookshop Online
 Sunday July 19th – 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)
Comedy Night –  JAMJAR
With Juliet Meyers, Sajeela Kershi and Dave Cohen
 
 
 
We have a very special comedy night in July. Very special.
JAMJAR is an acronym for Jews and Muslims Joined Against Racism and we’re totally thrilled to be holding a gig at the shop in support of this.
There will be three incredible comics here to entertain you.
 
DAVE COHEN
Comedian and 'Horrible Histories' TV show songwriter Dave Cohen 'guru of the one-liner' (The Scotsman) hosts the multicultural mayhem, and hopes to launch JAMJAR
 
JULIET MEYERS: THROUGH THE PIGEONHOLE
Comedian/comedy writer Juliet (Sarah Millican Television Programme, Mock the Week) and mother of imaginary child Carlitos doesn't belong. (And she's not sure she wants to.) Do you?  Hilarious exploration of the labels we assign ourselves and others.
 
 'Devilish…on the edge' **** (Scotsman)
'Laugh-out-loud funny' **** (Chortle)
 
SAJEELA KERSHI – SHALLOW HALAL
With column inches reserved for homogenised stereotypes, has comedian Sajeela Kershi become a cartoon version of herself?
A misspent childhood seeking religious loopholes means she now sits very firmly on the faith fence.
She's had enough of Koran hijacking extremists, Dawkins spouting atheists and finger pointing social media to last a lifetime! Can #hashtags really save humanity?
Struggling to understand YOUR place in the 21st Century? Keep Calm and Carry on to this work-in-progress show.


"Smart, funny with a mischievous glint" (Times)
"Magnetic, loveable and extremely witty" (The Spectator)
 
Tickets are just a fiver AVAILABLE HERE, and any profits on the night will be going to Big Green Education, the shop’s new Community Interest Company, to help promote the love of books and reading in Haringey (so dig deep!)
 
Bring your own refreshments and get set for a superb night.
IT WILL SELL OUT, I CAN GUARANTEE THIS.  SO BUY TICKETS NOW.

Or you could subscribe to our Children’s Book Club
 
Our Children’s Book Club works in exactly the same way as our adult one and we’ve enlisted some expert help to make sure we provide the most appropriate books for children of all ages. We’ve joined up with “Books for Keeps” to help us choose book for our kid’s book package. Books for Keeps are the UK’s leading independent children’s book magazine, reviewing over 1,000 children’s books each year. This is what they wrote in their first issue back in 1980.
 
 
‘We have assumed that you, our readership, are busy people committed to encouraging the reading habit amongst your children, not only in school but at home or on holiday too. Because there is so much available and so much new material being published, it is impossible to keep abreast of everything all the time. The thinking behind Books for Keeps is based therefore on the belief that book ideas, book opinion, book information and book news should be easy to digest, stimulating to read, and simple to select.’

The Book Club is a perfect gift for any book lovers out there – no matter what age.
 
There are 3 sizes of package, three months, six months and twelve months. Prices start at just £25 for children and £30 for adults.

  Welcome to The Big Green Bookshop, the award winning bookshop based in Wood Green, North London. We’re situated just off the High Road, a couple of minutes walk from Turnpike Lane tube station, on Brampton Park Road (an oasis of calm in the metropolitan madness).

We stock a great and varied range of books, which we individually hand pick for our customers, as well as stocking a wide selection of cards, bookmarks and other essentials. If you can’t decide what to get (the choice is sometimes too much), we sell our own vouchers too.

We have book groups for adults and children, which is open to everyone, and we also hold a staggering number of author signings and events for all ages. From Maisy Mouse to burlesque dancers, music legends and literary superstars, you can keep up with all the shenanigans on the website, or by signing up for our newsletter, just over there ------>

If we don’t have the book you’re looking for we can usually get it in within 48 hours, and you can now order online too, and we offer free delivery in the UK for orders over £5. You’ll also find special offers, signed books and all manner of delights here, so it’s definitely worth checking back every so often.

If the book you want is no longer available, we have an Out of Print Booksearch Service, which is totally free.
Details can be found here.

There’s so much more to tell you, but we’ll let you have a look around for yourself. Have fun and come and say hello next time you’re in the area. There’s usually a pot of coffee on the go, and we have a very comfy sofa.
