Book Clubs

We have not one but two book clubs!

Our book clubs meet every third Tuesday of the month at 20:00 and every last Thursday of the month at 18:45. Both of these groups meet at The Star Inn in Beeston on Middle Street.

Please note that you don’t have to have read the books to attend the groups. Feeling like a chat is a good excuse to go as any!

These clubs are open to The Hive WI members and non-members.
