The Book Hut

this Summer at Promenade Park

Come and join us at our pop-up shop this Summer at Maldon’s Promenade Park.


The Book Hut is a special project that we’ve been working on for a long time. At the beginning of 2021, in the third national lockdown, we were very unsure of what the future held for our little bookshop. Being a relatively new business that opened just three months ahead of the pandemic, we weren’t sure of what the future might hold for us.


We had so many ideas for Maldon Books, from author events to writing workshops to regular story time sessions. The restrictions have made it very difficult to do all the things that we wanted to do, and being a small premises, we weren't sure of what might be possible for us outside of lockdown. So in January we decided to put our heads together, and we came up with The Book Hut!


Here you'll find books for both children and adults, as well as a selection of reduced titles too. We'll also be hosting regular author events, signings and story time sessions too, in a spacious outdoor setting where we feel we can offer a safer experience for all attendees. We so wanted to find a way to still give you everything that we wanted to give you from the moment we opened our doors.


We've been so lucky to have customers who we now call our friends, and we just can't thank you enough for your support. We hope we can bring you something exciting this Summer at our local park, and you can find our events programme here.


The Book Hut is open seven days a week, though we might have to close up if its raining cats and dogs! You can still visit our bookshop on the high street for orders and requests, and we’ll always make sure to update our online profiles with any updates to our services.


We hope to see you there!
