We are working with several University-related organisations and the Two Rivers Press, aiming to open up the Acacias on London Road during the national Heritage Open Days in September, with a particular emphasis on Edith Morley, the first female professor in the UK who was also noted for her work with refugees and her campaigning for women’s education and suffrage. The Acacias was a Palmer family residence which they donated to the University College Reading.
We are working with Reading Central Library to refurbish their exhibition space with new spot lighting and a hanging system. The Library will offer the space for local artists and others for a rolling programme of exhibitions. Watch this space for further info available Spring 2018.
