Most of our events, held throughout the year, are talks given by nationally well-known authors about their latest book. Given the demand to hear them we hold these talks in a larger venue. Scroll down to see the events planned and how to purchase tickets.


Apart from these larger events, we also hold smaller events in a cosier venue where a local, or less well-established, author talks about their book(s). For these, a generous canapé buffet and a glass of wine are often provided and time is allowed before the talk to turn these into super social events.
