Reading Water Fest

Reading Water Fest will be taking place on Saturday 10 June 2017 between 11am and 5pm. The event will run from the Forbury Gardens, along the Kennet between Chestnut Walk and the Riverside Museum. Reading Borough Council and The Kennet & Avon Canal Trust are working together once again and hope you can join us for what we hope will be a very enjoyable day!

Watch live performances and join in with free family activities in the Forbury Gardens, browse the avenue of stalls along Chestnut Walk, listen to live music, enjoy a tasty bite to eat and something refreshing at the Bel and The Dragon at Blake's Lock and admire the flotilla of boats along the Kennet Canal.

If you would like to have a stall at the event please fill in our application form or contact Lucy Daniels on 0118 937 2771 or lucy.daniels@reading.gov.uk
