|Start Date:||3rd April 2018|
|Fee:||£25.00 What's included?|
The Dillington Book Club offers an opportunity for all those lovers of literature to meet to discuss a variety of books. The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month (with the exception of July and August) and is led by Elizabeth Rapp, who brings with her a wealth of literary knowledge and experience.
Discussion is always lively and passionate as members are encouraged to freely view and express their opinions. Whilst the book club is intended for serious debate there is also a lot of fun to be had and discussions often continue all the way through lunch.
The morning starts with coffee at 10.30am and finishes with a three course lunch at 1.00pm.

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
