BARBER BOOK CLUB

Why not join our monthly book club for a stimulating and informal discussion of books that link to the Barber’s magnificent collection and the themes its works explore?

The ever popular Barber Book Club continues throughout the year, exploring literature related to themes within our permanent collection and temporary exhibitions.  We welcome ideas from participants for future book club sessions.

The Book Club is held every second Tuesday of the month, 2 – 3pm.
