December 2020: Changes to Calderstones services in line with Tier 2 restrictions

Written by Rachael Norris, 2nd December 2020

Tis Winter, and I love to read indoors. When the Moon hands her crescent up on high:
While on the window shutters the wind roars. And storms like furies pass remorseless by. 

John Clare 

We’ve made some changes to our opening days and times at Calderstones in line with government guidance that Liverpool is now in local restriction tier 2. See below for what you need to know, we’re looking forward to welcoming you back to The Reader over the coming weeks! 

From Friday 4 December: 

  • The Reader Café will be open weekly, Friday to Sunday from 10am - 4pm operating takeaway service only, with outdoor seating at the Mansion House available. 
  • Serving hot food and speciality coffees, the Ice Cream Parlour will once again be open 7 days a week from 8.30am – 4pm, with indoor and outdoor seating available. 
  • The Reader Shop and Calderstones exhibition in the Mansion House will be open for visitors from Wednesday to Sunday 12noon – 4pm.  
  • The public toilets in the park will be open 7 days from 10am – 4pm. 

Closer to Christmas, we’ll share details of our daily opening hours over the festive season. 

Home For Christmas 

While Christmas may look a little different this year, we are determined to bring some warming cheer and festive fun to Calderstones Park. From poetry, music, heritage and food and drink, we’re hosting a range of  Covid-safe events throughout December which offer something for everyone! Join us for the Santa Post Outdoor TrailFestive Holiday Craft sessions, and our Cheese and Wine and Handyman Beer evenings. We’ll also have an afternoon of music from the Jubilee Stompers in the Mansion House Secret Garden on Saturday 12 December. 

As always, our priority is the safety of our community, visitors and colleagues. Where we are open on site, we’ll be operating one-way systems and implementing further safety measures so that we can remain Covid-secure. 

Once again, thank you for your support, we hope to see you soon.
