Next Meeting
9th March 2018
Jeff Noon

Jeff NoonJeff Noon is best known for the "Vurt" series named after his first published novel in 1993. That series and all of his other work have been hailed as the spirit of the age of rave/drug culture although Jeff Noon was never really a part of that scene. His more recent work has varied in many ways including a collection of very short character studies, a novel with an accompanying CD (although not available together), and a collaboration with several other writers. He's an icon of the age and not what he might seem to be.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

TIME: Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start.

Admission : £3 (members) £4 others
