Interested in hosting an event with Scrumptious Reads? We're a great small venue to consider for author events, workshops, talks and more. We're also available as a full-service bookseller for offsite events. Here are a few things you might like to know, and if you're interested, please get in touch! Due to the number of event requests we receive, and due to limited resources, we regret that we cannot take on every event that we receive requests for, but we will of course review all of them.
Scrumptious Reads is a great place to hold a cosy wine reception amongst books or an intimate author talk with seating. The acoustics are great so there’s no need for microphones, and we can comfortably seat around 20 people, with some standing room left.
If you’ve got an event planned but are looking for a bookseller to run the book sales (and wine, if you like) then we’d love it if you’d also consider us for those events.
Unfortunately, Scrumptious Reads is not accessible by wheelchair, though we hope to look into ways of rectifying this in the near future.
Once we’ve got an event planned, one of the main things to organise are the books! Scrumptious Reads is available as a full-service bookseller from book sourcing to setting up displays and bookselling at events within the Brisbane area.
Whether it’s an event with multiple authors or just going all out for one title, we’re happy to liaise with publishers and distributors to get hold of the books in plenty time. We’ll set up, display and sell books throughout the event.
Terms for event stock are ideally 50% sale-or-return.
Since Scrumptious Reads schedules its events programme by season, the earlier you can enquire about hosting an event with us the better. Two months is the ideal notice time, but we will of course consider all event requests made.
Scrumptious Reads handles all ticket sales through the website whether the event is charged or free, but we are also happy to liaise with publishers’ or hosts’ own RSVP lists.
Scrumptious Reads charges for events in order to meet wine, venue and staffing costs.
ON THE DAY/ NIGHT
Once everything’s arranged, all that needs to be done is to look forward to the event! If the event is at Scrumptious Reads, we’ll make sure there’s plenty time to set up and space to leave belongings, etc. If the event is offsite, we’ll arrange a convenient time to come by with stock, wine etc, set up the event, and then take it all away again afterwards.
