Every Saturday we run a children's Storytime (ages 3+) from 10:30am-11am and we host an Open Book Group every other month. We also hold author events, book launches and signings. Pop in and see us, we have been described as 'an oasis in a desert'!

Offer Details

We're very excited to announce that on Friday 30th August at 7:30pm - we'll be hosting our first ever LGBTQIA+ Book Group!

This Book Group is the GBF* to our Open Book Group and aims to focus on LGBTQIA+ literature and narratives. It will be running on the last Friday of every other month and absolutely anybody is welcome to join us as we discuss our chosen book over a glass of wine.

To start us off, we’ll be reading and discussing James Baldwin’s seminal and sublime second novel published in 1956; Giovanni’s Room, a haunting, controversial and a classic of gay literature.
