Tomorrow evening (Wednesday 10th March) at 8pm. The world premiere of my new talk “Reading Abbey 900”. Have you ever attended a world premiere before? Why not book this one here:
This year, being the 900th anniversary of the foundation of Reading Abbey, I have written a talk about the Abbey and the town of Reading, an often overlooked place. Come and find out why King Henry I founded an abbey here, and its story until the dissolution of the monasteries in the 153os. Then hear about its subsequent story, and that of Reading. We’ll discover a few Bs along the way; what’s that all about? The three Bs, Reading’s famous Victorian industries.
But, we’ll discover some more Bs as well, and, stop press, we have another new B – a Banksy – on the side of Reading Gaol.
I look forward to seeing you online tomorrow.
