Social Evenings

After much anticipation, our first social evening is ready to be put in your diaries…

On Wednesday 15th February, from 6:00-7:00pm, you’ll be able to browse our shelves and chat away without fear of disrupting nearby readers! It will be a great chance to meet people who share our love of books and, whether you’re a sci-fi enthusiast or lover of memoirs, you can be sure you’ll have some great discussions. Perhaps you’ll even find a kindred spirit?

The evening will begin with some gentle ice-breakers (which we promise won’t put you under the spotlight too much!) and then into free-time so you can socialise to your heart’s content. Feel free to come with a friend or alone – regardless, the evening will be full of bookish chats and fun.

This is a ticketed event costing £5 and includes either a hot, cold or alcoholic beverage. There will be a limited number of tickets reserved for those who are unable to afford it at present, so please enquire if you would like to be considered for one of these. You can contact us over the phone at 07597 365380 or email

As this will be our first social evening please bear with us while we try something new. We only ask that you are respectful and kind whilst chatting to everyone on the night.
