Published

on

The full line up for Reading and Leeds Festival has been announced.

We found out everything you need to know about the Reading’s biggest festival event in no just in our town but in all Berskshire.

When is it?
The Reading & Leeds music festival takes place at both sites over the August bank holiday weekend, from Friday August 23 to Sunday August 25.6.

Campers with early pass entry can get into the site on Wed 22 Aug 2018, 18:00 to find the best spot to pitch up your tent.

Where is the Reading festival site?
The Reading site is in the centre of Reading and is held on Little John’s Farm, Richfield Avenue.
There will be shuttle buses available for festival-goers running from Reading train station to Richfield Avenue.

Who is headlining?
This year’s headliners are…

The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty One Pilots and Foo Fighters.

Foo Fighters are perhaps the biggest name on the list.

The band from Seattle has been going strong since 1994 with classics such as ‘The Pretender’, ‘Learn to Fly’, ‘Times Like These’ and ‘The Best of You’.

Headed by Dave Grohl, the band is certain to draw huge crowds.

Foo Fighters have a pedigree for huge performances, being headliners at Glastonbury Festival in 2017.

Other artists performing worth keeping an eye out for include Dave, Fredo, Bastille, Mura Masa Chvrches and The Wombats all perform throughout the stacked weekend.

Where to buy tickets
Tickets for Reading 2019 are available here.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020

Published

This will be the second Window Wanderland accross the whole of West Reading.

The idea is to cheer up otherwise dark and cold evenings with fun and light, in the form of decorated windows, and an opportunity for the community to come together. People can walk with neighbours and friends to follow the window trail and explore their neighbourhod in a new light.

Last year, over 40 houses decorated their windows and hundreds of school children decorated their school windows at Wilson Primary, Battle School and Oxford Road Community School. Over one thousand people downloaded the map to follow the magical trail with friends and neighbours.

2020 will be even bigger and brighter. If you would like to find out more, or get involved by decorating your windows at home, at work, at school, at a nursery, at a business or organisation please sign up here and encourage your neighbours to get involved. This works so well if a lots of people take part on a street and then get together to see eachother’s windows. See how one street had fun doing this last year here.

The organisers will again be holding free workshops where they’ll provide materials, tools and people can swap ideas, tips and skills.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020 from 6pm to 9pm. Please register or sign in to make a window.
