About Bookfeast

Who we are

Bookfeast was set up as an Oxfordshire charity to promote a shared love of reading, dedicated to encouraging and sustaining the habit of reading, in order to nourish minds and communities.

What do we do

See our Activities links in the navigation above for more information


Because reading for pleasure is a magic potion – it enhances emotional understanding, allows us to learn about other people and how to relate to them and to discover the possibilities of the world outside our immediate environment.   For older people it can sustain mental and physical health; our reading groups stimulate conversation, boost confidence, and address social isolation.
