A Place to be Real Together

Reading Allowed, Reading Aloud

Treat yourself to time to read...


Mon 4 June - Fri 8 June 2018


Space is available on this event! :-D


While our Dorset Art Weeks exhibition continues, we invite you to join us for a time when reading is not only allowed but positively encouraged. What and for how long is up to you! Maybe settle with one of those books you keep meaning to delve into? You’ll be in community with other keen readers, with chances to exchange ‘good read’ recommendations. Also, Tony Jaques, Othona warden and former Radio 4 broadcaster, loves to read aloud. He will offer us some engrossing listening in a session of mixed poetry and prose each afternoon or evening. Plus, for those who wish, a coaching session to improve our own reading aloud skills.

We offer a number of special 50% discount places. They’re for you – if you’d like to muck in for up to 3 hours a day (Tuesday to Friday) as part of our Cream Tea Team. Help to bake, serve customers, clear and wash up. It’s a friendly experience, not a dreadful chore! Reading Allowed/Aloud sessions will not clash with cream tea duties! To apply for one of these discounted places, complete the booking form at full price - then also send an email to bookings@othona-bb.org.uk to offer yourself for the cream tea team (places are limited - we'll let you know when we invoice you if the discount is available to you).
