“Shared reading is a wonderful way of meeting like-minded people. It’s a way of exploring different perspectives on life and appreciating different views”

Shared Reading groups bring people together through great literature to talk, laugh and share.  We have serious conversation and good fun.  Just drop in and enjoy listening to a story or poem – there's no homework, and no pressure to read or talk.

Keeping safe during the Coronavirus crisis


It has become necessary for us to suspend all of our shared reading groups for the time being. We are really sorry not to be able to offer our unique blend of friendship, shared endeavour and pure enjoyment just at the time when we could all benefit from it! 

 Blaby group: watch this space!

We hope to bring you news, soon, of the relaunch of our Blaby group! The current Coronavirus situation means that it would not be wise to launch it at the moment, but when the coast is clear, we hope to launch the group on a Friday afternoon.
