Book club at Knole

Be a part of the new book club here at Knole, where you can explore books and discuss them with others in a place rich with literary history.

  • Booking essential

To recognise and celebrate the literary history of Knole, we will be hosting a new bi-monthly book club. This year as we celebrate Vita Sackville-West with 'Vita - Discover a story of life and love at Knole', the focus will be on titles relating to the Bloomsbury Group with books by Vita Sackville-West, Virginia Woolf included.

Book club members will receive 20% discount if they buy the chosen titles from the Bookshop at Knole. You will receive information on how to redeem this discount once you have booked your space. Please bring your own copy of the book to each meeting.

The book club will take place in the Hayloft Learning Centre, with drinks and biscuits provided. This is a free event but booking is essential as spaces are limited.

Book titles for each month: March - All Passion Spent by Vita Sackville-West; May - A House Full of Daughters by Juliet Nicolson; July - The Crichel Boys by Simon Fenwick; September - Orlando by Virginia Woolf; November - Vanessa and Her Sister by Priya Parmar
