The Turkey Cafe

Leicester Writers' Club usually meets at the Adult Education College in Leicester. But last night the college was closed for building work. So we met instead in an upstairs room in the Turkey Cafe on Granby Street.

I love this building. So exuberantly ornate. So narrow and tall. And in terms of room hire, it was free.

My father used to say "Everything free is worth exactly what you paid for it". But in this case we had the use of a beautiful room. There were 21 of us and the room was full. So it is not quite big enough for our usual meetings - where we might have anything up to 30 on a regular manuscript night.

If you happen to be passing the Turkey Cafe on a cold evening, do pop in and try the white chocolate drink. Delicious.
