Book Club
  • 2nd Thursday of each month

    7:30pm-9pm, free

    Our monthly book club is a great opportunity for literature lovers to read and discuss a wide range of books. From comic capers to powerful drama, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The opportunity to discuss the book you have read is a great way to get more out of the reading experience, making you think more deeply about various aspects of the story as well as hearing other people’s opinions. The club is very informal and is a great opportunity to chat to other book worms, so as well as the month’s chosen book you are sure to hear some great new recommendations whilst you enjoy a complimentary coffee or tea.
