Book Club

Ticketing information

£5 payable on the night, RSVP to

The book club is now entrenched in our monthly member event calendar and we have had some brilliant debates over the course of the year. We always welcome new members – even if you haven’t managed to read the book in question.

The meetings start at 18:30 and are held in the Weston room of the Clore Centre in the Barrack Block at Hampton Court Palace. Please email if you would like to be part of the group and receive updates and emails about the books we are discussing. Refreshments and nibbles are provided.
