Relaxed Reading for Parents and Carers

Sessions run weekly on Wednesdays, 10am – 11.30am

A free Shared Reading group for parents and carers who’d like to spend some time reading grown-up stuff, with a little one in tow.

We'll choose the book or poem and read aloud above the noise and through the feeds.

Bring your baby along, enjoy the stories and the chance to meet others. No need to read aloud. 

We're based in the Old Café, along the main corridor, opposite the Heritage Room. It's on the ground floor, so buggy and pram friendly. There are baby changing facilities on-site too.

This group is suitable for parents and carers who are with babies and children who aren’t yet at the walking stage. If you’ve got any questions about whether this group will suit you please email

The group is free to attend. You can book places in advance or drop in on the day.

Nestled among acres of beautiful parkland in South Liverpool’s Calderstones Park, the Grade II listed Mansion House has been recalled to life as a unique public space offering experiences that bring people together. 

This is a place unlike any other, where everyone is welcome, and where anyone can come to experience literature, find and share meaning, be nourished, develop new skills and explore creativity. 

If you have ever been to one of our Shared Reading groups, you’ll know the friendly, exhilarating experience we are seeking to create here. 

Discover a vibrant programme of reading aloud, weekly groups and activities, yoga and special events.

Assistance dogs and their owners are welcome in the Mansion House.
