With the Penny Readings 2011 just around the corner, the Christmas spirit is very much in the air. If you missed out on Penny Readings tickets this year, do not fret as there’s another Christmassy-themed literature event that promises to be filled with festive fun and frivolity…
The Festive Readers Evening will be held at St James’ Library, Birkenhead on Wednesday 7th December and is sure to serve up Christmas cheer by the stocking-full. Appropriately, given the Dickens’ fever we’re currently experiencing at TRO (as well as is the reading population at large with the approaching bicentenary), the evening will have a distinctly Dickensian flavour. There’ll be festive readings, books, lively discussion, a quiz, mulled wine, nibbles and many more seasonal treats in store – including an appearance from very special guest Brian Nellist.
Sounds like a perfect evening to really get into the Christmas mood.
The event will run from 6.30-9pm. Tickets cost £3 and are available from all libraries in Wirral. For more information, you can also telephone St James’ Library on 0151 652 2268.
