Get ready for The Penny Readings Festival

November 29, 2013

santa2The Penny Readings Festival
Great Hall, St George’s Hall
Sunday 15th December, from 1.30pm

There’s not long to go until the biggest day of The Reader Organisation’s festive celebrations and as previously announced, this year will be more of an extravaganza than ever before as for the first time we’ll be holding a special seasonal Penny Readings Festival to accompany the ticketed events.

We’re having problems with our emails at the moment, so you still might hear if you’ve struck lucky and won tickets to the Penny or Ha’penny Readings, but whatever the case, you can still join in the fun by coming along to The Penny Readings Festival, running from 1.30pm on Sunday 15th December. Entry to the Festival is completely FREE, with no tickets required, and there will be tons of fun reading-related and Christmassy activities to take part in right through the afternoon.

The Penny Readings Festival will feature lots of reading activities, including story time for children and shared reading taster sessions for adults, as well as games and activities, a cafe, and a chance to get creative. Come along to the magnificent St George’s Hall to find out more about The Reader Organisation and Calderstones Mansion House, finish off your Christmas shopping, and enjoy an afternoon of free festive entertainment. You can also bring along any spare books you have lying around the house to donate to our outreach work, as well as pick up some new ones.  

The Penny Readings Festival is free and open to the public – start your Christmas the Reader way!

    I hope that the Penny Reading is successful. Unfortunately I didn’t get the two tickets that I applied for. This is the second year I’ve been disappointed. Are there any returns available?

      Thank you for your kind words and I’m sorry to hear your name wasn’t pulled out of the hat again this year. There were hundreds of entries and only a very limited number of tickets available, so many people are in your situation, unfortunately. If any tickets are returned, we will draw another name out of the hat and let the winner know as soon as possible.

      However, we do have the Penny Readings Festival this year, running from 1.30-5.30pm in the Great Hall, which will be full of reading activities, stalls, entertainment, and much more. This is completely free and no tickets are required – we’d love to see you there!
