Performance Books @ CPR is delighted to be working with WSD again, after providing such an enjoyable and successful specialist shop at the Cardiff event in 2013. As travelling to Tapei, Taiwan with a van load of books for the 2017 event wasn’t practically possible, here we are with a virtual store that we hope you will enjoy browsing.

Below you will find this year’s catalogue, as well as the one from 2013, plus a host of fascinating titles covering the general and the specialist in theatre and performance scenography, design, fashion, costume, lighting, sound and other related subjects.

Look out for special offers appearing on WSD2017 and CPR social media throughout the festival.

We can post books to anywhere in the world: postage costs are calculated at the checkout based on the weight of your books. However, if you wish to order more than four or five items, please do email us directly so that we can ensure that you are getting the very best price for mailing a bigger order.
