Reading Rooms Hull 2017

Reading Rooms has arrived in Hull in 2017 for a series of reading-based sessions that will run throughout the year.

Reading Rooms is a reading aloud and shared reading programme that gives participants a voice, reduces isolation and anxiety, and promotes wellbeing.  It is a legacy project established by the Verbal Arts Centre, Derry-Londonderry, as a City of Culture programme in 2013 and will be delivered locally by Hull Library Service.
