Book club

Why not bring a picnic to enjoy while you relax and informally discuss a good book at Agatha Christie's holiday home?

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event

In May the book club will be meeting in the marquee in Greenway's Walled Garden to discuss 'The World of Jeeves' by P. G. Wodehouse. This selection of short stories has been chosen as there is a copy in Agatha Christie's bedroom signed to Agatha by the author. Even if you've never read the book, you can find out more and enjoy good company in the garden.

Visit Greenway's website nearer the time to find out which book will be the focus for the July book club.
