First Pop-up Reading Room

First Pop-up Reading Room comes to Milton Keynes

Well things are certainly starting to happen here with the opening of  the first You and a Book pop-up reading room in January 2018.

pop-up reading roomThe idea came about when I kept getting settled down to read in cafes only to find that once I’d bought my coffee and cake, the noise level rose to such a degree that I wasn’t able to focus on my book. After passing many businesses that were closed at these times I started to wonder if they would consider opening out of their normal hours and creating a space for readers to enjoy their books in peace.

Now is the time for me to test that idea by seeing if readers will be interested in such spaces if the businesses were willing to provide them.

As such the lovely people at Revolucion de Cuba, Milton Keynes, will be opening their doors at 10am on Friday 12th January. The conservatory will be open for two hours solely for readers. If you’d like to come along and enjoy the peace tickets are available here.

The ticket price of £5 includes entry, hot drinks, chocolate brownies and churros. What a bargain!

There will also be a little extra from the venue in the form of an Amigo card which entitle you to special offers on week days.

If the idea takes off I’m hoping to organise these events on a more regular basis and in different locations. I’d love it if you can join us and please share with any friends and family you think would like to come!
