A 40 minute taster session incorporating a simulated university reading group. Accessible to all, this lively workshop will demonstrate the benefits which staff and students regularly discover through Kingston University's monthly reading group. On this occasion we will be looking at the poem Extinction by Jackie Kay which participants will be encouraged to read in advance. We will also be giving away past copies of previous books we have studied. Come along and join in the discussion!

SHEDx is a partnership working initiative between The Community Brain (a community interest company), Kingston Council and Kingston University. It is designed to stimulate the Tolworth community to become engaged in rethinking and reusing local space through a series of small scale interventions. Through the use of mobile sheds, linking and creating green spaces, a mobile stage, promoting local entrepreneurship and celebrating local heritage, the project will challenge negative perceptions of the area and facilitate a sustainable community-led approach to local development. Come along - have your say - influence this project.

Fresh from winning the Times Higher Education's Widening Participation Initiative of the Year award, Kingston University's Big Read project is returning for a fourth time in 2018, with this year's chosen title by Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
As part of the annual University-wide shared reading scheme, a specially-printed edition of a book is sent to every new student ahead of their arrival at the institution to welcome them to their new life on campus. Local community groups are also participating such as the Joel Night Shelter.
Visit us to find out more, and pick up a copy of a previous Big Read book.
