Open the door to reading, music, theatre, and wellbeing events at The Reader at Calderstones.  

Thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are excited to invite Front Door Key holders to events and experiences from world-class theatre from companies like Shakespeare’s Globe, to family fun in the Storybarn, live music, art classes and our second annual Gravity Festival.
