Due to an Ancient Curse, the shop donates all its profits to Ministry of Stories. Behind Hoxton Street Monster Supplies’ secret door, you will find the stockroom bustling with the wild imaginations of young writers.
We run free writing programmes for local children and young people from age 8+.
We believe in the power of the ideas, creativity and imaginations of young people.
Hoxton Street Monster Supplies also offers the world’s only monster-human letter exchange, where the young and young-at-heart can write to one of six lonely monsters, and receive an original reply.
Visit in-store to pen a letter to Betty the Yeti, Elgorn the Dragon, or Pudding the in-the-cupboard Gremlin. They eagerly await your reply. Suggested donation £5.
We need morbid mortals to keep Hoxton’s monstrous community stocked with their daily essentials, and to serve and unwelcome the odd human customer as volunteer shopkeepers.
