The Reading Centre welcomes new members and we hope you'll join us. We arrange an extensive programme of events, including:
- evening and afternoon talks
- day visits to Trust properties and other places of interest
- theatre trips
- walks and holidays, at home and abroad
Our programme of events raises funds to provide support to a number of National Trust properties. Many of our members provide volunteer support. For example, working as stewards at one of the above properties or helping with events.
Membership is open to all National Trust members, volunteers, and members of affiliated organisations. If you would like to meet people with similar interests in heritage and conservation - and our programme appeals to you - you will be made very welcome. The current annual membership fee is £12 per person or £18 for two people living at the same address. In return for their subscription members can attend talks and receive two newsletters a year which contain details of events.
Evening meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of most months in St Peter’s Church Hall, Church Road, Earley RG6 1EY, commencing at 7.30 pm. Car parking is available in the adjacent St Peter’s School grounds
From October to June there are also meetings on the second Tuesday afternoon of each month in the Abbey Baptist Church, Abbey Square, Reading commencing at 2.00pm. This venue is in the centre of Reading and is close to bus stops. There is no nearby car parking.
