The MERL monthly Chatty Café

An informal drop-in for caregivers

Tues 18 Jan, 14:00 - 16:00

Join us for the Chatty Café on the third Tuesday of the month.

This is an opportunity for caregivers and loved ones to drop into The MERL Café and, welcomed by our volunteers and staff, socialise and be inspired by the museum collections and sensory resources, sharing thoughts and reflections. Buy a drink from the café and get free cake!

This is a very informal, non-structured session. Companion Tours will be available for anyone who would like a personal tour of the museum. Volunteers and staff will be on hand to support carers to enjoy the session, but are not able to offer personalised support. Organised with our partners, Age UK Berkshire.

Booking not necessary though if you are planning on coming in a group of 4 people or more, please let us know in advance.

Please call us on 0118 378 8660 or email Phillippa on
