Children and families coming independently


The Reading ancient schoolroom welcomes children, adults, and families. This year (2020) we will be open from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd February; the cost is £5 per person (regardless of age). Booking for entry at a particular time is essential, as the space in the schoolroom is strictly limited; once you enter you may stay as long as you want, but most participants tend to stay about 2 hours.

Children under 10 should be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult at all times. Although we have had participants as young as four years old, younger children require close supervision that we cannot ourselves provide, and the university campus is not set up to be safe for unsupervised young children.

Please specify the ages of children when making bookings, so that we can be sure that appropriate materials are available. Thank you!
