Silver Rainbows LGBT Network for older people is celebrating World Booknight week at Frodsham Library on the evening of Tuesday 18 April from 7pm – 9pm.

Hosted by Frodsham Proud Bees and attended by Frodsham Mayor Cllr Mallie Poulton, the event is free. Cheese and wine will be available afterwards at Kash 22 in Church Street, Frodsham. People are welcome to come along on the night or contact Silver Rainbows at: or call Colin on 01270 653150 if help is needed with transport or access.

Colin Avery from the Silver Rainbows Network said

This event is a chance for older LGBT people to come together for some fun and laughter as well as sharing the poetry or prose, adventures or romances that have been special to us and that might inspire others.”

The event is part of a programme run by Silver Rainbows – a network for older LGBT people in Cheshire who might be experiencing loneliness or isolation to get together and build up new friendships either face-to-face or online.

Silver Rainbows is a project hosted by Body Positive Cheshire & North Wales and funded by Brightlife.

World Book Night is a national celebration of reading and books which takes place on 23 April every year. Books are given out across the UK with a focus on reaching those who don’t regularly read, and are gifted through organisations including prisons, libraries, colleges, hospitals, care homes and homeless shelters, as well as by passionate individuals who give out their own books within their communities.
