MERLy Christmas Shopping Event
Support The MERL and have fun on Museum Shop Sunday
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, meet our local suppliers, try some Christmassy crafting AND feel a warm glow knowing that all your purchases help support The MERL’s work with collections and communities. There’ll also be festive performances by Universal Voices, a children’s community choir run by the University of Reading’s Institute of Education!
Read more about Christmas in the MERL gift shop in our latest blog from the shop team!
Your Christmas shopping doesn’t have to be stressful! Parking is free and available in our own car park or on Acacia Road next to the museum. Admission is free, so why not visit the galleries or garden while you’re here?
Help keep us all healthy this Christmas! Please do not attend if anyone in your group is displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 or flu, or if anyone in your group has recently tested positive for COVID-19. Thank you.
