The family-friendly Ha’penny Readings is jam-packed with Christmas fun for children of all ages, whilst the evening Penny Readings includes special guests such as Frank Cottrell Boyce and Wirral Ukulele Orchestra.

The line will be open from 9am on Friday 15th November until 5pm Friday 22nd November (any calls or emails before or after this time will not be entered into the draw).

Get Into Reading group members and volunteers can apply for tickets through their group facilitators.
