New year, new venue

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re well and in a suitably festive mood.

Following numerous problems with our usual book group venue, the Living Room on Grey Street, which culminated in them booting us out of our spot yet again in December, Caroline and I have decided to move venues.

Our new home, from January 2012, will be The Carriage pub in Jesmond. It’s really easy to get to by Metro, as the pub is the old Jesmond station so it’s right by the new Metro station too. There’s also plenty of parking for those of you who drive, and you can walk there from Newcastle city centre in about eight minutes.

More importantly, the staff could not be more helpful or enthusiastic about hosting the book group from next month.

And here’s the address and phone number:

The Carriage
Archbold Terrace
Newcastle Upon Tyne
Tel: 0191 281 2151

The next meeting will be Tuesday 3 January 2012, with one meeting at 12.30pm and one meeting at 6.30pm, as usual. We’ll be discussing A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan.

Have a good break and I look forward to seeing you there!
