After the BRN frenzy we will go asleep now to get our good looks back, so we will stay closed from 21st to 26th June. Back on the 28th June, see you!

14th June 2016 // Start at 8.15pm

If a book is advertised as “vastly entertaining feast of storytelling”, I not only get pimples due to this vast vastness of vastidity [sic! ], but my expectations of course are high and I’m easily disappointed as you might have figured out by now. So, we do have a page turner, considering the chapters never exceed three pages; the problem is that I find it hard to turn them with any excitement at all and therefore you just have to see yourself and pass me a drink! PS: I do like the title. A lot.


Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!

British Rail Films

For our June Open Meeting the Deutsch-Britische-Gesellschaft Dresden e.V.,
invites you to come with them on a “Journey by British Transportation Films”.

In 1948 the newly nationalized British Rail founded British Transportation Film. For over thirty years critically acclaimed directors would produce documentaries, promote tourism and show what the railways did for Britain. Today these films offer are rare glimpse into the past – and look far beyond the railways themselves. After a short introduction we will have a look at some of these short films, ranging from farms on the move to fun excursions to the capital, London.

Entry is free, all are welcome!

The Cotswolds, Shakespeare and Me

William Shakespeare died in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon on 23 April, 1616.
On occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death, here is our bow to the great Bard – from a somewhat unusual angle:We’re asking, how would Shakespeare vote if he had the chance at the British EU referendum on 23 June?

Our guest speaker Martin Kimber (Cheltenham, UK) will talk about “The Cotswolds, Shakespeare and Me, or: Was Shakespeare the First Great European?” and illustrate Shakespeare’s assumed voting intentions based on his and the Bard’s reverse parallel lives: Shakespeare from the northern tip of the Cotswolds who, after he got married, moved to South London where he made his fortune writing international best sellers; and Martin, born and bred in South London who, after getting married, moved to the Cotswolds and just wrote a few very bad limericks!

Martin Kimber has lived in Cheltenham in the beautiful Cotswolds since 1979. Having trained as a teacher of drama, he had a 40 year career in community education and youth work, during which time he organised many projects with EU funding for young people. Since retiring from his main job he has worked part time for the British Council and for the University of Gloucestershire.

Entry is free, all are welcome!

On Thursday, 5th May, we open from 2 – 6pm!
