A weekly shared reading group, bringing people together and stories and poems to life

Looking forward to welcoming back both old and new friends to our weekly shared reading sessions. Each week we read a short story aloud, and talk about what we have read, how it made us feel, what it made us think about.  We read stories from every period of history, from every corner of the globe. There is usually time to fit in a poem, moving, sad, funny, difficult, uplifting poems, from every time and everywhere.

There’s no pressure to talk or to read aloud, you can simply come along and listen.

Groups run every week – Friday 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Groups are free and open to all; existing group members and new members welcome.

For more details and to book your place on these sessions please contact Sheila on 07939 397843
