Friends of Reading Abbey

      Join the Friends/Renew Membership

We aim to aid the preservation of the Ruins of the Abbey for the enjoy-
ment of all, and to spread knowledge and public awareness of its history.
Meetings are held twice yearly in Reading, on Friday evenings or Saturday
afternoons, when lectures are given by specialists on the life of the Abbey
and related topics.

Members receive three newsletters per year. Other occasional events take place.
