Weston Lit Fest: The Reader

Shared Reading groups bring people together through great stories and poems to talk, laugh and share.

“The Reader is the best thing I have ever belonged to as a group member and a volunteer:” Joyce, Liverpool

How does it work? A group of people, one of them a trained Reader Leader, reads a short story or poem aloud. Then we talk about it in any way we want to. There is no need for group members to read aloud or speak – it’s fine to just listen.

Shared Reading is part of The Reader, a national arts charity. Hundreds of Shared Reading groups meet across the country.

Weston Lit Fest is produced in partnership with Weston-super-Mare Town Council and The Write Box.
