Open to All – Join a Shared Reading Group on Zoom

Written by Jo Spragg, 10th December 2020

Shared Reading groups are free and open to all, and you can now join in from the comfort of your own home via Zoom.

There’s no pressure to read aloud – just bring along a cuppa and listen as we read a great story or poem together. It’s a wonderful way to escape the everyday!

See below for details of online groups that are currently welcoming new members or call us on 0151 729 2250 to find out about how you can read with us over the phone.

If you’re still not sure whether Shared Reading is for you, you might find it helpful to watch our latest video.
