Waterstones events

We host thousands of events every year at Waterstones, from high-profile celebrity signings at our flagship store in Piccadilly, to local author signings, question-and-answer sessions, panel discussions, and children's storytelling events and activity days.

You can search for our bookshop events on this page by author, by bookshop and by calendar month, by clicking on the relevant pod and scrolling the drop-down menu, and then clicking through to find the full details of each event, and the related book.*

* Please note that events can occasionally be cancelled at short notice or their times or dates may alter, and we therefore recommend that you check with the host shop before travelling.
