The Historic Royal Palaces member book club is an opportunity to discuss and debate a set book for each meeting. We are fortunate as an organisation to enjoy numerous literary associations including with prominent authors. The books we discuss often relate to the palaces in our care and their history.

The meetings start at 18:30 and are held at Hampton Court Palace. Refreshments and nibbles are provided.

In June we will be discussing The King's Witch by Tracy Borman.
