    Oimi - you can probably find the parts for that at a Tesco's in the UK. I looked at the "DIY and Home" section online and didn't see shop lights but they have workbenches so they probably have those as well. Here in the US we buy the parts separately - the socket on the cord is one, the aluminium hood screws onto that and is another and the bulb is the last - and I bet you have them there too. I use the twisty energy-saver bulbs that put out 150W or a cold flourescent that will do the same level and you can experiment with light choices you have - Tesco's has some energy saving halogen bulbs on their site that look interesting. I would stick with bulbs like the energy savers and flourescents that don't get hot, less danger.

    Any hardware store! Walmart and Target may even have them as well!
