How long?
The reading group at 'The Globe' has now been running for over three years.
Do I have to talk?
No, not if you don't want to, though obviously you'll get more from the meetings if you do.
Beers?
After every meeting, the group always gathers for a drink at a bar somewhere to continue to chat. Attending the meetings is a great way of making friends in Prague, especially if you haven't been in the city long.
