Our film, Yarn, Natter, Blether has been shortlisted in this year’s Charity Film Awards. Vote for us! 

Yarn, Natter, Blether

We believe in the power of reading, and the transformative impact that books and storytelling can have. Yarn, Natter, Blether was developed to showcase the amazing stories that every one of us has, and to highlight how Reading Friends can unlock these stories by developing meaningful human connections.

‘Life has a way of surprising you. The longer you live the more you discover about yourself. Who would have known that a girl born during the war, in a bombed-out East Anglian town, would become a northern lass, with a love of Scandi crime and a BA in LUST?
