Christmas is coming: let's celebrate

Christmas, shopping, events, Christmas Shopping events: we've got it all!

December is nearly upon us, but the last week of November is packed full of festive fun!

This Thursday 25th November is the start of Late Night Shopping in Linlithgow, lots of shops and business will be keeping their doors open late every Thursday throughout December, and this week to start the festivities with a bang, many will have special offers.
From 5pm this Thursday, Far From The Madding Crowd is offering £5 off all hardback books*, plus our beloved Book Subscription Service will be available at the discounted price of just £60 when bought in-store: it's the PERFECT gift for the book lover in your life.
And remember, you can still order direct through our website:
Or, phone us (01506 845509), email us (, facebook us (Far From The Madding Crowd Linlithgow), tweet us (@Furtherfrom) or instagram us (@maddingcrowdbooks) and we can fulfill your Christmas orders: we are here and happy to help!
