We don’t have any rules, but if we did they would look like this…

– Everyone is welcome, every time
– You don’t have to come every month
– You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to
– You don’t even have to read the book!

Come along for lively discussion, piercing insights, lots of open-minded warmth, drunken fistfights and great conversation. (Note: only one of these is not guaranteed).

When? All meetings take place on Wednesdays at 7.30pm, and last about an hour.
