National Trust Theatre: debates, talks and interviews will be led by farmers, environmentalists, commentators and outdoor enthusiasts

The Big Barn: Pull up a hay bale and listen to stories and interviews, and watch demonstrations from your favourite TV personalities and authors, wildlife experts, environmental commentators and leaders, countryside enthusiasts, and foraging and food experts.

Adam Henson’s Farm: Meet some of the friendliest and rarest animals you’ll know from the programme, and learn more about how farmers care for their livestock

The Village Green: The ultimate setting for family entertainment, complete with bandstand and traditional maypole

The Craven Arms: Order your cool beers, cider or ginger beer. There’s plenty of room in the pub garden too – a fine spot to meet up for lunch, with a great summer food menu to choose from.

With on-site camping available, Countryfile lovers can even make a weekend out of what will be one of the biggest, and most exciting, outdoor events this year, an experience that the whole family – and their dog – can enjoy.

Captured by filmmaker Charles (Charlaaye) over a day in 2019, this video of Reading will definitely take our breath away.

I wanted to make a video exploring the town of Reading (were I grew up), exploring some of its different locations and the overall vibe and atmosphere it gives off as a town. After hearing the song now featured in the video, I knew it would be a perfect fit.
I had a lot of fun making this video and would appreciate it if you could tell me what you thought about this video in the comments, I’m open to all feedback as well as criticism.
