In this unique event we will be celebrating the simple but most incredible positive impact that intergenerational reading aloud has on both the reader and the listener.  

This event has been inspired by charity Silver Stories, where children (known as Silver Readers) call a Silver Listener (older person) every week to read a short story or poem to. However, for this in-person event at Storyhouse we have decided to give adults a chance to read aloud too.  

Come along to this event if you love to listen to a story…
