Are You Listening? Festival 2021

Rescheduled date

New date: Sat 9 Oct, from 12:00



Dear Listeners,

Since our last update to you, there have been positive developments with the vaccine rollout and Monday’s Government roadmap announcement.

As a result it will come as no surprise that we are rescheduling (for the last time we hope!) from our usual April spot to Saturday 9th October 2021. Tickets for this new date are now on sale.

All previously bought tickets (since the completion of the 2019 event) remain valid for the new date. If you are unable to make the new date, you can request a refund for the face value price of the ticket from your ticket agency provider.

We are sincerely very grateful to you, our lovely audience, for all your support in retaining your tickets for the new event, helping us to get through this period and to keep raising vital funds for Reading Mencap. We will be making our next band line up announcement/update in the near future and we look forward to seeing your beautiful souls in the Autumn.

In the meantime, keep safe and lookout for each other.
