Have you got what it takes to become an Extreme Reader?

Wednesday 22nd July

Extreme Reading training sessions

14:30 Tuesday – Sunday

Free with museum entry ticket, booking not required

This summer, a very unusual individual has taken up residence in The Story Museum’s Extreme Reading exhibition. Visitors to the Oxford based museum will have the chance to meet and seek advice from the Extreme Reader himself, Duncan Rochester.

Accidentally locked in the library of Rochester House when he was just 6 years old and not discovered for 14 years thereafter, Duncan Rochester spent most of his young life reading (and eating) books. Since being released he has made it his mission to train an army of Extreme Readers to spread stories throughout the land.

This summer Rochester will be running daily training sessions at which visitors will be able to find out what it takes to become and extreme reader. With his idiosyncratic blend of magic tricks and puzzles, Rochester will show you how to spice up your summer reading.

Extreme reading sessions take place at 2:30pm Tuesday – Sunday until August 31st and are free with museum entry. No advance booking is required.
