About the group

We are a sociable and friendly book reading group. Since early 2010 we have been meeting once a month in bars around the centre of Bristol. The group is open to all ages/genders/etc and is free to join. We'd be pleased to see you at our next meeting, all you need to do is turn up. We are usually easy to find as there are about twenty of us each time. The discussion is always very sociable and informal, we aim to be welcoming to new members and not to take ourselves too seriously!
