We’ve been doing these for a few years now and they are held on the first Saturday in December, in the afternoon, in central London.
Last year we went back home to a place we’ve used quite a bit in the past; The Theodore Bulllfrog Pub It’s very near to Charing Cross and Embankment tube stations. It has a charming upstairs room.
Last year we were hit by Omicron and though the event had sold out – all 33 places had gone – we had just 17. The Theodore Bullfrog did us proud. It was a lovely atmosphere.
We usually have quite a bit of time for mingling. I also run a “speed-dating” session where you have three minutes to talk to people you’ve not yet had a chance to speak to. We tell our guests the latest news and announce the theme for our next annual anthology.
We sell copies of our annual anthology and our The Best of CafeLit book. Authors can also bring copies of their own books to sell.
We end the afternoon off with readings from our authors.
It’s open to anyone but we do give the authors we’ve published this year priority. If you’re interested you can book a place here.
We are charging a deposit this year – this is redeemable against any food you purchase or any books you buy.
