A Sense of Green: Shared Reading

12th Sep 10th Oct 2023

Read and listen to great stories and poems about nature and wild places, both near and far, real and imagined.

Shared Reading means reading aloud, together, pausing for discussion. You can sit back and relax, or you can read and share your ideas.

We will read, reflect and feel inspired together. Shared Reading is for everyone, whether you love books or have never read before. Come for a friendly chat and to hear brilliant texts read out loud - no pressure to read aloud, and no need to prepare anything – just turn up. We will provide reading materials on the day:
