We here at the Book Club invite students from all over the university, regardless of your course, to participate in reading a book monthly.

As you would expect of a book club, we read a book every month, meet up to discuss it, and pick a new one. Really we're a group of book lovers looking to connect with like-minded people. We also host socials and events, so don't worry if you're too busy to read; reading isn't a requirement if you just want to hang out. Tea and snacks provided!

Key info:

- Our meetings are held on alternate Wednesdays from 4-6.

For more details on specific events, see our social media.

- Membership for the whole academic year is £5 - You'll get access to our bi-monthly meetings, socials, events, trips and giveaways.

- We have hoodies for sale!  £20 for a regular embroidered hoodie, or £25 for one personalised with your name!
