A POP-UP shop is returning to Maldon's Promenade Park after last year's launch was a success.

Maldon Books set up its pop-up Book Hut last summer when the staff were unsure whether the High Street bookshop would be able to open again due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After it was a hit with residents and visitors, The Book Hut will be returning to the famous park this summer.

Olivia Rosenthall, owner of Maldon Books, said: "We're really looking forward to returning to the park again this year, we're hoping to bring the community a little bit of book magic, with something for everyone.

"We were so well supported by our customers throughout the pandemic and beyond.

"We're incredibly thankful to everyone who has kept our bookshop going over the years, especially in such turbulent times."

She hopes to host the grand re-opening with someone special.

The hut will run events with authors until the end of September, alongside its regular Song, Rhyme and Story Time sessions on Tuesday mornings for up to 5-year-olds.

Its is also offering work experience for anyone wanting to dip their toe into the world of book selling, with voluntary hours available for anyone aged 14 and above.
