Christmas gifts in the MERL shop

Have fun Christmas shopping at The MERL!

Come to The MERL and enjoy a lovely, festive experience. Find special gifts in our gift shop, seasonal treats in the café, and meet our local suppliers.

There’ll be Christmassy craft activities and Winter-themed object-handling in the galleries from 10-30am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 3pm. 

Feel a warm glow knowing that all your purchases help support The MERL’s work with collections and communities.

A little extra!

2pm: Don’t miss the chance to join colleagues from the Special Collections for a free tour of the James Joyce: a love of language exhibition in the staircase hall. Email specialcollections@reading.ac.uk to book.
