Our Shop

Inspired by The Whitaker’s contemporary art exhibitions and eclectic museum collection.

With a selection of books, zines and magazines, vinyl records, children’s books and toys and gifts handmade by artists, makers and creatives working locally, nationally and internationally, The Whitaker Shop has been carefully curated by our museum and gallery staff and volunteers.

As well as supporting local artists, makers and creatives right here in Rawtenstall, your purchase will also ensure that we can keep The Whitaker alive for future generations.

And don’t forget, we’re open until 8pm every Thursday, for late-night shopping.

Hand Selected

Discover new poetry, novels, memoirs, zines and essay collections – along with our hand-picked selection of vinyl records.

Supporting Our Artists and Makers

Our team also work with artists, makers, creatives and businesses working locally, nationally and internationally to curate a selection of gifts, artworks and prints.
