Bromley House Library
Saturday 25th May
2pm-3pm

Page Against the Machine is an international event which brings readers of all ages and backgrounds together to enjoy the simple pleasure of reading. UNESCO Cities of Literature across the world will join us by hosting their own event on the same date.

Here in Nottingham, we’ll be hosting our Page Against the Machine event in the picturesque Bromley House Library garden. Founded in 1816, Bromley House Library is a flourishing independent subscription library tucked away in Nottingham City Centre just off the Old Market Square. Housing nearly 50,000 books, this Grade II* listed Georgian townhouse features a beautiful walled garden, which is one of only two remaining in the city centre.

Can’t join us in person? Pick your favourite reading spot – at home or elsewhere – at the same time and date, and join us online! Make sure to take a picture of your chosen book and reading spot and share with us on social media using the hashtag #PageAgainsttheMachine.

Please note that due to being a Grade II* listed building, Bromley House does not currently have a lift / wheelchair access.

Programmed by Nottingham City of Literature in association with Norwich UNESCO City of Literature and The Book Hive. Supported by the UNESCO Cities of Literature network.
