The Reader Café and Mansion House closed Monday & Tuesday due to weather warnings 

Written by Rachael Norris, 15th July 2022

In response to extreme weather warnings issued for high temperatures on Monday and Tuesday next week (18 & 19 July), we’ll be closing the Mansion House for a couple of days in the interest of the safety of our volunteers, staff and visitors. 

The Reader Café, Mansion House, Bookshop and the Storybarn will be closed on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 July, with all activities, including Shared Reading, cancelled until it’s safe to return on Wednesday. 

For anyone who does brave the heat, please take care and follow local safety advice. The Ice Cream Parlour and Hatch (at the side of the Mansion House) will be open serving ice cream and cold drinks to help anyone out who might need to cool off.  

If you are planning a visit be sure to check our social media pages for the latest updates before setting out. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

Take care out there! We look forward to welcoming you back to the building, and our Shared Reading groups, on Wednesday.

(Until then if you want to distract yourself from the heat by getting stuck into some great literature – check out our Reading Rooms – online Shared Reading groups for anyone, anywhere!) 

“Heatwave. Won't last. Always passing, the stream of life, which in the stream of life we trace is dearer than them all.”
― James Joyce, Ulysses
