The Testaments out now


Midnight Release-The Testaments

Monday 9th September 21:30 - Tuesday 10th September 00:30 at London - Kensington

Waterstones Kensington are delighted to be hosting an evening of Margaret Atwood appreciation to celebrate the release of the hotly anticipated 'The Testaments'.



The evening will include a quiz to determine whether you can tell fact from fiction. Testing both your knowledge of dystopian fiction & current political policies, the winner will be first in line to receive their copy of the Testaments at midnight, as well as a gift bag full of prizes.


Caution: quiz may impact your faith in the world.

In addition to this, we will be turning our basement floor into a live theatre space where we will be hosting a performance of 'Pleroma' from the theatre company 'Last Women Standing'. Drawing inspiration from women throughout history, the performance gives voice to the silenced, & re-frames the narrative of history to include and celebrate women.Equal parts confrontational & compassionate, this is the perfect accompaniment to Margaret Atwood's remarkable body of work.




Throughout the evening will be serving drinks & snacks to keep your energy up as we count down towards midnight...




The Testaments will be for sale from 00:00 on 10/9/19




We will reserve a copy of The Testaments for every ticket holder.


If you would like to reserve more than one copy, send us an email at with the quantity you'd like to reserve (We may sell out!)
