Social Events.


Dinner at St. Petersburg - Saturday 7 March 2009

Although several parties have been organised and enjoyed over the years this was the first "formal" Chapters' social event. We have had socials since (!) - we're not THAT boring a group - but there's rarely any photographs of the proceedings. So if you're at all camera shy, Chorlton Chapters is the perfect group for you!

Book Stalls and Swaps

We opened our popular Book Swap stall again in summer 2008 at the Beech Road Festival where despite the rain much fun and swapping was had by all. Here we are under a very welcome gazebo.

The club was involved in 2007's Chorlton Book Festival.  We held Book Swap on the afternoons of Saturday 14 April and Saturday 24 November from 2-4pm in Chorlton Library, and also a soiree on Wednesday 25 April, again at the Library, where folk chilled out with a glass of wine and talked about the club, and how to join or start one of their own.

Chorlton Chapters on TV!

On Monday 16 April 2007 we played host to a film crew from Granada TV who were filming footage to be used in a new book quiz entitled The Book Quiz.  Hosted by David Baddiel this started its run on BBC Four on Tuesday 17 July 2007 at 11pm. There were five instalments and our clip aired in the last one, which was shown on August 14.
