What we're about

Our book discussion evening, usually on the second Tuesday of the month, is when we share views and gain new insights into our chosen book. This is a moderated discussion, and everyone has the chance to contribute. The discussion is often lively, but never gets personal. All views and opinions are respected.

We love to socialise and new members are always welcome. There's plenty of time to get to know the rest of the group before, during and after the meeting. There are some notes to help you here (https://1drv.ms/w/s!AiagkDafLioJgpt0GA2x0vUpLO5Lsg?e=Ux9dot).

As well as our monthly book discussion, we have regular theatre nights and social events. Suggestions for nights out are always welcome.

Anyone who loves reading books and talking about them should join us. Books are always chosen by a democratic vote. This often leads us to some surprising places, but everyone finds it rewarding to read books that they might not have otherwise picked up.

For a list of the books we have read so far, look here (https://1drv.ms/w/s!AiagkDafLioJgpt8BTYJ86dCLW9Rfg?e=PjBYmj). Although there is a wide variety, we mostly read fiction of a middle- to highbrow quality.
