Are you interested in discovering more about Reading’s hidden histories to put us on the map?

Throughout February and March 2022, join Museums Partnership Reading for free creative heritage workshops to discover and collect information, images and stories about the town centre’s Market Place and St Mary’s Butts conservation areas.

We will be looking with fresh eyes at local haunts and archives to tell the tales of Reading past, present and future. This will help shape ideas for street art to be developed later in the year.

No experience needed – just an interest in finding out more about your town to uncover and share the secrets and stories of people and place.

Free to attend. Simply drop in on the day.
