Reading Abbey Quarter: Then and Now
Running: From: 20 May 2017 To: 23 Sep 2017
Venue: Reading Museum,
Reading Abbey Ruins by an unknown artist, about 1830
As work gets underway to reopen the Reading Abbey site in 2018 come and see how the Abbey Quarter has changed over the centuries through artworks in the Museum’s collection. Explore how the English Civil War impacted on the Abbey Ruins, the changing portrayal of the Abbey Gateway, the development of the Victorian pleasure gardens and its more recent past.
As part of the exhibition there will also be an opportunity to feedback on the work being planned to introduce new display panels across the site. This is the visitor’s chance to help us plan for the future of Reading Abbey Quarter!
Reading Abbey: Then and Now is part of the Reading Abbey Revealed project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
