About the venue

The Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin stands in St Mary's Butts in the heart of Reading Town Centre - the road is so named because this is where archery was practised in the Middle Ages. The original church was overshadowed by the mighty Reading Abbey, which was founded King Henry I in 1121 and which led to Reading becoming one of the foremost religious and political centres in England. The Abbey was dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1539, during the Reformation; this led to St Mary's regaining its importance, this time as an Anglican Minster church. It was rebuilt between 1550-1555 using materials from the Abbey, and looks pretty much the same today as it did then. Today the church hosts regular services, and has a busy programme of concerts and recitals. Bach to Baby is delighted to bring our Family concert series to this wonderfully historic and beautiful church.
