Saturday 30 June, 28 July & 25 August

Venue: Abbey Ruins


Enjoy some living history in the Reading Abbey Quarter.

Will you meet Queen Elizabeth I, Matilda the Empress or even King Henry I himself on your visit to the Abbey Ruins or Forbury Gardens? Our volunteers will be dressed in replica period costumes to impress you as they share royal and everyday stories of the past.


All ages, Families.
