Big reader? Big future!
Our Read On Nottingham campaign is working with Nottingham City Council, Small Steps big Changes and UNESCO City of Literature to encourage children to read for pleasure as part of the Big reader? Big future! campaign.
We believe that reading gives children the best possible start in life.
We are ambitious for every child to read today and succeed tomorrow.

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.
