In July 2023 we launched our first Book Club. It filled up straight away, so we started a second, which is now also full. If you could like to join the waiting list, please drop us an email to . We meet the first and third Wednesday of the month in the evening.

We aim to journey around the shop’s various genres and mediums and try and offer something different and challenging (but in a nice way!) to the group. We have an open discussion about the books, and then anonymously score them out of ten at the end and I take an average.

The books we have read / are reading from the most recent:

Diary Of A Void by Emi Yagi / Time Shelter by Georgi Gospodinov / Appliance by J.O. Morgan (6.4 Group 2) / Appliance by J.O. Morgan (7.4 Group 1) / Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung (6.7) / The Summer Book by Tove Jansson (6.1) / The Gallows Pole by Benjamin Myers (6.5) / From A Mountain In Tibet by Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche (7.8) / A Study In Obedience by Sarah Bernstein (5.1).


Our Writing group currently meets once a month, on the first Thursday of the month in the evening. It is a group for all abilities and with previous experience or not. The group is fairly new and is deciding what it wants to be, but at a basic level it is intended as a support and encouragement network for those wishing to write more and potentially an avenue for creative projects in the future.
