What we're about

GBC is not accepting new members until Covid restrictions are lifted and we can return to face to face meetings. Please request to join in a few months time. Thank you!

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE AUGUST 2020: We have started to meet face to face with limited numbers once a month. Most of our meetings will still be taking place via Skype.

This is a group for anyone over the age of 25, living in or around Gloucester, who's interested in reading, discussing good books, meeting new people, and chatting over a drink or coffee. Our catchment area does not cover South Gloucestershire

I currently run four groups a month for those who would like to read more, to read books outside their comfort zone, for those who are avid readers and those who want to get back into reading. We spend over an hour discussing our book but on the flip side, our members are warm and welcoming and enjoy a chat and a laugh. Please only join if you have the time to come to our meetings.

Monday and Wednesday groups meet at The Fountain Inn, Westgate Street, Gloucester. We meet upstairs which is accessed through the main bar. Parking is on-street, unrestricted and free in the pedestrianised zone after 5pm. POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Tuesday group meets at a member's house in an upstairs drawing room. There are several steps in the property. On street parking. NUMBERS LIMITED TO SIX UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Thursday afternoon group meets at The Greyhound pub in Greyhound Gardens, Longlevens. Level access and plenty of parking. No 94 bus stops nearby. POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

There are no criteria or rules about joining apart from a willingness to take part.

Fees per meeting are £2 per member. Cash on the night or can be paid directly into bank account

I am reluctant to turn anyone away, but due to demand, I regularly review membership and remove those who do not attend a discussion in the first 2 months of joining, or who have been unable to attend for 6 months or more. Should you drop off the membership list, you will be most welcome to rejoin in the future.

Over the past year, GBC has also evolved into a film club too. We regularly see films at The Sherborne Cinema and sometimes the Guildhall, so please feel free to join in! POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Please check out our past meetings or https://book-club.org.uk/gloucester/about-u ... to see a list of our previous reads. We have a closed Facebook group, Gloucester Book Club, please do join us. This is where we do most of our posting and chatting! We're currently on Twitter too @lbookclub1 and on Instagram
We have a recently launched book blog at gloucesterbookblog.wordpress.com where we regularly review and chat about our reads!
