Manchester City Readathon

We joined forces with Read Manchester, the reading campaign from Manchester City Council and the National Literacy Trust to unleash the power of our Readathon on more than 100 schools across the city for one glorious fortnight.

The Manchester Readathon ran from 17 – 28 June 2019, building a buzz about books and the power of stories by asking pupils to read what they love, culminating in a citywide Drop Everything and Read (#DEARManchester) on the last day that was open to community groups and businesses too.

The 2020 Manchester Readathon was cancelled due to Covid – we’re hoping to unite again in future years! For more information or to get involved email manchester@readforgood.org or ring Annie on ¬†01453 839005.
