Books for Amnesty Brighton

Temporary Closure Notice

To safeguard our staff and volunteers we have decided to close our Amnesty bookshops until further notice. I hope you will understand why we have made this decision and we look forward to seeing you in the shops again soon.
If you have any donations, please wait until the shop reopens to bring it along – when we will gratefully receive it as usual. Please do not leave donations outside the shop.
As soon as we're back on our feet and open you to come and browse all the wonderful books we have to offer, we'll let you know. Keep checking back and take care.
