Fuggles launches book club with beer

Fuggles Beer Café is combining the perfect pairing of pages and pints this month with the launch of a brand-new book club.

The book club will commence on February 27 at 7.30pm at the Café on Grosvenor Road, with all future meetings taking place on the last Tuesday of every month.

The aim of the club is to get people together to ‘discuss a great read over a great drink and have a chat about it.’ There will also be food on the night, with £5 hot dogs and toasties available for attendees of the book club.

There is no obligation to attend every meeting so don’t worry if you can’t make a session or there is a particular book one month that you are not interested in.

Fuggles owner Alex Greig told the Times that ‘he couldn’t take credit for the initial idea for the book club’ as it came from his colleagues Heather and Aidan and their passion for reading. But he is looking forward to welcoming people to the first meeting later
this month.

He said: “It’s always great to launch new events which help us to engage with both our regulars and the wider community and also offer something a little different in the town.”

He added that he thinks pubs in general should be used for more events and local group meetings and he would like to make Fuggles a ‘hub’ in the community.

Ahead of the first meeting, Heather and Aidan are compiling a soon-to-be-announced shortlist of three books to get things started.

But the club will be fundamentally ‘group driven’ with everyone who attends able to have their say on which books they should read and how the club should work each month.
