Welcome to the blog for Calderstones Mansion, home to The Reader and the future International Centre for Reading.
We’re situated in the beautiful surroundings of Calderstones Park, Liverpool. Since January 2013 we’ve been creating a place for the local community to come and read, discover our history, have a bite to eat, be creative, make friends and discover new opportunities. After years spent empty and hidden away we’re a little run-down, but we’re working very hard to get up to our former glory, making the Mansion a home from home for everyone.
We’re creating a model reading community, with many more activities and opportunities inside our doors and at our social enterprises very nearby. This is a place for everyone.
Here, you’ll be able to read all about what we’re up to as we bring the Mansion to life once more.
