We are a great group of people who enjoy books, art, music, and theatre, for the pleasure they give us both individually and collectively. Nothing beats, being able to share your thoughts and opinions with like minded people, in a friendly and sociable environment; probably accompanied by a glass of something. We have a regular programme of events throughout the year. We also encourage you to make suggestions for events you think may be of interest to the group. 

Just recently we have negotiated a discount worth up to £36 a year if you attend all of our monthly featured films. This more than offsets our annual membership subscription (£5 Film; £10 Book and Film) charges.

Rest assured we're a friendly bunch and you will be made to feel very welcome.

But please don’t join or contact us if you’re:

a. Mad.

b. Trying to sell something (expensive gifts  to myself are acceptable however)

c. Trying to save our souls (see point a).

d. Wanting to bring stuffed toys along to meetings to keep you company (see point a).

e. Very, very angry about something I’ve written (tell your therapist instead).

f. Any combination of a, b, c, d or e.

g. Lack a sense of humour.

Thanks and hope to see you at a meet up soon.
