Script Ordering Service—Important Information

9th March 2016

Samuel French have changed the way that they trade and can no longer support the Script Ordering Discount Scheme. In its place I have secured a deal with Gardners. They are a book wholesaler and will give discount on all titles, not just scripts, and not just items from Samuel French. This means that scripts from other publishers will now be part of the discount scheme.

   You can order any title from fact to fiction; dvd films, box sets, music etc and you will get discount on everything. There is no minimum order value, or minimum number of books to be purchased. On top of their normal discounts, Gardners run monthly promotions providing bigger discounts on certain items. A regular update will be provided to clubs and individual members so you won’t miss out on any great deals!

How it will work: To place an order you must email/post HQ the following information (orders must be in writing):


  1. Title of book / DVD / CD / script
  2. Author / Artist (if applicable)
  3. Publisher (if known)
  4. ISBN (if known)
  5. Number of copies required.
  6. Delivery name and address
  7. Club name / individual membership number.

The biggest change will be in how HQ process orders. Instead of placing individual orders as they come in, a bulk order will be placed once a month by HQ (on the 1st of the month, or the closest working day after this date). All books/scripts will be delivered direct to HQ in bulk (next day delivery) and will then be packaged and sent out to whoever has ordered them. HQ will invoice you for your order. You will need to pay p&p now but I will send out orders by First Post which is significantly cheaper than Royal Mail. Please make sure that you pass on this information to anyone who may be interested. It could save you a fortune! Non-individual members who wish to use the scheme will have to order via their club who will be responsible for paying the invoice. If you have any questions please contact me. Brenda Jane Williams,
