On October 13th we want to surround Reading Gaol in a “mass hug” as a demonstration of the wish to have Reading Gaol brought into the community. We feel it should become an arts hub and museum, accessible to all and providing cultural activities for Reading residents and visitors alike. The Ministry of Justice want to sell it to the highest bidding developer.
We need quite a lot of people in order to do this. If you are free on the afternoon of October 13th, why not come and join us?
If you are planning to participate in the hug then please register on Eventbrite (it is free). This helps us to guage how many people to expect and also enables us to contact you with any updates about the event (we promise not to bombard you with emails, and we won’t use your email for any other purpose).
The hug is organised by residents of the Reading area with the support of Reading Civic Society.
