Welcome to the Manchester Book Club website, hosted by blogger and book lover Lucy of Literary Relish. You don’t have to be a blogger or reviewer to join, all we need is lovely people with enthusiasm for the written word.

The group is lively and very welcoming and aims to read and discuss books of all kinds, taking it in turns each month to bring a selection. Meetings are very relaxed, there is no fee to join and books often accompany something tasty to eat and drink.

We meet on the first Tuesday evening of every month in the heart of Manchester. Details can be emailed to you once you have joined the group.

To register your interest and join our current waiting list please email:


In the meantime our previous reads can be found here.

  1. I just moved here from California and I am interested in attending your bookclub. I was a charter member of my club back in California, so I would love to join a new club here.

    1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for your message – we’re always delighted to welcome new faces to the book club. We do have a bit of a waiting list going at the moment due to demand. Can I add you to it and let you know once a space becomes available?

  2. Hi,
    I’m from Greater Manchester and have been thinking of joining a book club for some time as I have a real love for literature. I would love to join a platform where I could read and discuss novels with like minded people. Please contact me if a spot becomes available!!

  3. Hi,
    I live in Stockport and have been thinking of joining a book club for while as I love reading and writing. I would love to join your club where I could read and discuss about the book/novel. Please do add my name as and when the new slots becomes available.
    Many thanks

  4. Hi , I’m Diane, I’m 48, live in Manchester and would love to join your bookclub, for a few reasons actually, but mainly my lifelong love of books!. I’d love to read with others and share perspective and opinion, is your waiting list still very long?
    Hope to hear from you soon
    Diane 🙂

    1. Hi Diane

      I’m so sorry for the late reply! I’m rather rubbish at realising when I have message on our website 🙂
      Thanks so much for your interest. I’m afraid the waiting list is still rather huge but I’d be more than happy to add you to it on the off chance. Do let me know if you live anywhere near Glossop as I should be starting one there some time next year!
