Arnolfini Book Club
Arnolfini's bookshop has long been known as one of Bristol's independent bookshops and we're delighted to launch this new series of talks and performances in our Front Room.
This regular series features writers whose work connects to Arnolfini's commitment to exploring the state of the nation, the voices that have gone unheard, the stories that have until now remain untold.
The talks take place in our Front Room on the ground floor which houses Arnolfini's library of art and design books. You are welcome to purchase drinks in advance of the talk and bring them to the Front Room.
Space is limited so advance booking is advised.
