VIRTUAL Down At The Abbey

Watch anytime

Down at the Abbey is an independent music festival held in September in the stunning Reading Abbey Ruins. From the creators of the award-winning Are You Listening? Festival.

Due to Covid-19, the festival was unable to take place this year so we present a virtual experience streaming on Reading Culture Live. It combines live music performances with some historical insight into Reading Abbey and the waterways that feed it.
