Nibbies Awards 2021

Halfway up the Stairs was absolutely thrilled to be nominated for Children’s Bookseller of the Year (UK & Ireland) . It was an honour to be the only Irish nominee on the list, with the eight other nominees based in the UK. You can see information about all the nominees here

The awards took place (online) last night 13th May 2021, with Lenny Henry presenting the award for Children’s Bookseller of the Year (see video below). Our team of Trish, Amanda & Meriel dressed up for the occasion and raised a glass of bubbly to celebrate. Moon Lane in Ramsgate, Kent were worthy winners on the night but we were so happy to be nominated after just a year and a half in business. Judges praised the remarkable resilience of all nine shops on the shortlist for this award. “These booksellers have had a traumatic year, and it’s incredible to find that they have emerged from it even stronger.”
