New Relics for Reading

RG Spaces supported this project with a small grant for materials. Local artists created new relics with Reading themes which were shown in a Reliquary in Reading Minster to accompany the Reading Between the Lines production of a new play, Henry II.

The Reliquary transferred to Reading Museum and was exhibited during Spring 2019.

To help keep the memory alive, and as an experiment in showing an exhibition catalogue in a more interactive way, RG Spaces’ iMuse programme created online versions using commonly available IT see

Reading based artist Thérèse Lawlor created the frieze for the Reliquary which we show on our website header. You can learn more about the spaces it portrays here.
