Having heard about how great they can be we’re starting a silent reading club at The Retreat in Hebden. We close our upstairs space off on a Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 and anyone is welcome to come along and talk/socialise for the first 30 minutes. Then, from 1:30 onwards would be reading in silence for an hour. After that there’s the option to stay and chat, leave or stay and read for as long as you would like. It’s a great way for introverts to be around other people without the pressure of talking to strangers, plus it’s really nice to have a reading space and dedicate some time to yourself.

All you need to do is bring your own book or magazine and just enjoy the calm space.

1:00-1:30pm - People arrive, order drinks/food, share what they're reading
1:30-2:30pm - Quiet reading hour
2:30-5:00pm - Optional socialising, or just keep reading, leave when you’re ready
