St George's Church Hall, Cleveland Road, Chichester, PO19 7AD, South East
Open Lectures & Talks'The Chichester Literary Society was formed in January 2005. Its predecessor, the West Sussex Literary Society (founded by Irene Campbell) was disbanded and the new society formed in response to the wishes of members, who wanted a Chichester-based society, rather than one whose meetings were held in different locations around the county ... Since its formation, the Society has gone from strength to strength. Throughout the year it offers a wide range of talks by speakers on many literary subjects.'
