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 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!

As far as possible, it would be helpful to buy the same edition of the books which will make it easier and quicker when reading round.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently. Giles Tremlett (2012)
