We run taster events, training sessions and appear at conferences across the UK, all year round.

Upcoming events are listed below:

 Wednesday 13 & Saturday 16 March, 2.30pm – 4pm
The Reader Ice Cream Parlour, Calderstones Park, Liverpool, L18 3JB

Later this year, The Reader will be reopening The Mansion House, a place where anyone can come to experience literature, find and share meaning, be nourished, develop new skills, explore creativity and, above all, feel valued as part of ‘something real’.

To help bring this vision to life, we need dedicated and passionate volunteers, who could:

  • run new Shared Reading groups
  • share their arts and wellbeing skills
  • welcome and guide visitors
  • help with small DIY tasks
  • explore the heritage of the ancient Calder Stones
  • help with all things green and gardening on-site.

Can’t make either session? Pop your details over to and one of the team will get back to you with details.
