We are pleased to report that the Reading Abbey Revealed Project has just been awarded £1.77million by the NLHF, which approved its Round 2 application.
Julia Holberry Associates supported the Project team through the application, writing its Activity Plan.
Reading Abbey will undertake a programme of events and educational activities to bring the Abbey Ruins to life. There will also be an extensive programme of conservation works to the Ruins and the Abbey Gateway. New interpretation of the Abbey Quarter will include a new display at Reading Museum.
