Not everyone has access to community facilities, and some may feel excluded from activities they would love.

With Reading Rooms goes mobile, that problem is solved.

If you can't come to us, we will come to you in the Reading Rooms bus.

All about our bus

The bus was funded by the former Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.

It is instantly recognisable as it travels the highways and byways of Northern Ireland. 

We visit harder to reach, isolated, or marginalised communities bringing with us our customised, accessible space and the unique Reading Rooms experience

In good weather, we bring out the chairs, unroll the canopy, and enjoy literature and conversation in the sunshine.

When there is a nip in the air, we can read together in comfort inside.

The bus is also available for festivals and events

Who do we reach?

With our partners and funders we work across all communities and all age groups, sharing the pleasures of reading aloud and conversation.
