Thanks to our Team Reading Town Ambassadors

Throughout September and October a team of over 30 volunteers helped give visitors to Artangle’s Inside exhibition a warm welcome to our town.

With over 10,000+ visitors over the two months, the volunteers acted as first point of contact for those coming from far and wide to visit the exhibition letting visitors. As well as providing directions to the exhibitions the team were on hand to offer their expert local knowledge to direct people towards the many other attractions and facilities Reading has to offer.

And it wasn’t just visitors who benefited, local residents also had the opportunity of finding out about upcoming Year of Culture events and even learn some interesting facts about our town that they might not have known!

To show appreciation for the outstanding ambassadorial role the team played, the Mayor of Reading Cllr Mohammed Ayub hosted a Thank You reception for the team.

There are a few photos in the gallery below. If you were part of the team and took some photos whilst on shift we would love to add them. Email
