Read On Nottingham launch event

Read On Nottingham officially launched on Friday 20 April with a literacy-themed bus tour of local primary schools and early years settings, kindly supported by Nottingham City Transport.

The bus stopped at five locations where children aged between one and five climbed on board to enjoy a performance by local interactive music workshop providers Rainbow Stripes. Pupils were also be gifted a brand new book and a Read On Nottingham bookmark to take home. The bus then made its way to the Angear Visitor Centre at Nottingham Lakeside Arts, where key partners met to celebrate the launch.
