The Book Club

The Book Club, Mabook-club-1nchester’s first static dry bar, was launched by POPS in September 2016 providing a social experience for those in recovery and for the general public who do not wish to be around a drinking culture.

Located at 6 Clifton Road, Prestwich, M25 3HQ, The Book Club offers a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, including mocktails, fruit smoothies, teas, coffee, as well as basic, but good quality light snacks and food in a relaxed, warm and welcoming space spread over two floors.  Also on the menu; quality background music, live entertainment and themed nights.

Diane Curry, OBE, CEO, Partners of Prisoners (POPS) said “This is very exciting, as The Book Club not only offers a space for individuals who wish to socialise in a non-alcoholic environment but it also provides employment and volunteering opportunities to those in recovery.  The Book Club, builds on POPS’ trading arm, 2nd Chance, set up to offer pre-employability support to ex-offenders, their families and those in recovery.”
