This is a group for anyone in and around the Gloucester area who's interested in reading, discussing good books, meeting new people, and chatting over a drink or coffee twice a month. It's for anyone, younger or older, who likes a good read; it's for those who would like to read more, for those who are avid readers and those, like me, who read lots and then stop for ages! We are a serious, organised book group, and spend at least an hour discussing our book! On the flip side, our members are warm and welcoming and enjoy a chat and a laugh.
There are no criteria or rules about joining apart from:
Please bring ideas for a book to suggest. If your book is successfully chosen, you have to attend the next meeting to face the music or revel in the genius of your choice!
I try to keep site costs down to £1 per person per meeting, but membership needs to stay under 50 to achieve this. Therefore, periodically I remove members who have not looked at the site for 2 months or join with good intentions but aren't able to attend a meeting in the first 3 months (unless there is a good reason and you let me know).
Over the past year, LBC has also evolved into a film club too. We regularly see films at The Sherborne Cinema and the Guildhall, so please feel free to join in!
