Didsbury Book Group

We talk about them too ! If you like to talk about what you've read, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and there's a shorter version of upcoming books here.

We've found ourselves unexpectedly popular over recent months and so — regretfully — we're not accepting new members at the moment. This will change, so please do come back to this page periodically.


What is a flirtini ?

It's a kind of champagne cocktail, pineapple in it and a little twist of lime. Others do say it is a cocktail containing vodka, champagne, and pineapple juice. Flirtinis are the potation of choice at the Didsbury and South Manchester Book Group.

Should I drink them ?

Yes. Without doubt.

Sounds great ! Where do I get them from ?

Any reputable victualler will vend you one.

Do say

I'll have a flirtini please !

Don't say

I'll have a crate of brown ale.

Not to be confused with

A crate of brown ale.
