The Bookshop Band writes and performs songs inspired by books, inspired by hundreds of authors from Shakespeare to Philip Pullman.

Between them, Beth Porter and Ben Please, bring the books to the stage. Playing many instruments, including cello, harmonium, glockenspiel, guitars and ukuleles, their distinct voices create a cinematic sound that draws the audience right in. No previous knowledge of the books is required as the band guides the audience through the stories behind each song’s inspiration.
