AN AWARD-WINNING independent bookshop is opening a third store.

Forum Books, which is based at the Chapel in Corbridge’s Market Place, opened a shop in Whitley Bay earlier this year.

And they are now opening a third shop, 'The Accidental Bookshop' in Alnwick, on Narrowgate.

Owner Helen Stanton said she hopes the bookshop will be open by the end of the month.

Forum Books have recently been nominated in Holly & Co's The Independent Awards 2021.
