The Book Lovers' Supper Club celebrates the best of British writing over supper, wine and great conversation with top authors. Set up to bring the literary world to mid Sussex, it is usually held in The Barn on Ditchling village green - a quintessentially English setting - every eight weeks or so.

Some comments from our authors:

Chris Cleave

'Last night was an absolute winner. You are a brilliant interviewer and a first rate organiser. I loved that event. Your organisation was flawless & your guests warm, big hearted & smart. I also hugely enjoyed listening to Claire, and learned a lot from her. I bet your project will continue to go from strength to strength and I will be telling everyone that they MUST go to one of your nights. Thank you very much indeed - it was an honour.'

Claire Fuller

'I enjoyed it so much - lovely food, great questions and a wonderful audience.'

Emma Healey

‘It was a really brilliant event. One of the best I’ve been a part of, you were a fantastic host, and it was a real treat for me to be able to listen to another author’s Q&A.’

Penny Junor

‘Thank you so much for inviting me. The supper itself was absolutely delicious, really, really good, but the event was fantastic too. You managed the whole thing so beautifully and I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such a responsive and enthusiastic audience.’

Helen Lederer

'From touch down at Hassocks to arrival (via a chauffeur) at a picture-perfect barn by a pond, my literary outing at The Book Lovers Supper Club was a delight. Friendly souls and delicious food (and wine) provided the perfect backdrop to literary reveals and quality chat. We all went home in very good moods which was the proof of a fabulous event.'

Bill & Virginia Nicholson

‘We felt so welcomed. A big friendly gathering with good food and good talk, where we can all share our love of books. This is what life's all about.’

Erin Kelly

‘If only all literary evenings were as relaxed and intimate as The Book Lovers’ Supper club. The candlelit barn makes such a refreshing change from the cavernous libraries or half-empty bookshops I usually find myself in. I felt as though I was dining with friends.’

Beth Miller

'Thank YOU Melanie, I really enjoyed it. It was a great evening. You are such a good interviewer, and everything was so well organised. And what a lovely, receptive audience!'
