The CHG’s “culture club” meets once a month to discuss books chosen by members but also includes some non-book events such as watching DVDs or communal theatre visits.
Meetings are usually held in a member’s house and only open to subscribed members of the CHG. The Book & Film Club organiser circulates event notices on an internal mailing list.
