Forbury Fiesta
Event time 11.00am - 4.00pm
Event cost Free

We return to the Forbury Gardens for the launch of this year's Reading Children's Festival. Attractions on the day will include children's entertainment and workshops, charity and information stalls, tombolas, refreshments, face painting, arts and crafts, balloon modelling and that's not all. 

Highlights include:

  • Come and Meet the Dinosaur - Tiny, a 125 million year old dinosaur brought to life by the wonders of modern science. You can pet her, you can feed her, you can talk to her in dinosaur language; just make sure you avoid the dreaded Thagomizer or you might end up extinct yourself! Tiny is accompanied by a palaeontologist who presents a lively and informative natural history show in which audiences are encouraged to share their knowledge of dinosaurs and to come up with some scientific theories.
  • Waterstones will be presenting storytime in the bandstand at the Forbury Gardens featuring author/illustrator Duncan Beedie.
