Book Clubs

We run two adult Book Clubs which meet every 6 weeks. Our Booka Book Club meets on a Wednesday night and our Book and a Beer Book Club on a Thursday night (7.30pm). Both groups meet at the Shop and are free to attend. New members are always welcome. So, step outside your comfort zone and come along to explore new authors and genres – we’d love to see you. Book Club members receive 10% discount off the price of each Book Club read.

We also run two Children’s Book Clubs (Year 3/4) and (Year 5/6), a Teen Book Club (Year 7/8) and a YA Book Club (Year 9+).

For local Book Groups we offer a 10% discount when 5 or more copies of the same book are purchased.
