Reading Children's Festival 2023

6 May – 4 June 2023

Four fun-packed weeks of events and activities lie ahead for young ones across Reading as our Children’s Festival celebrates its 34th anniversary. The fun begins with our much-loved Forbury Fiesta on Saturday 6 May in the Forbury Gardens. It’s extra special this year as we are celebrating the King’s Coronation with an amazing programme of Royal-themed activities and performances.

And it doesn’t stop there - from sport and music workshops, to fun days with art and craft sessions, you can take your pick from the huge variety of exciting events taking place at venues across Reading over the following weeks.

Check out the online diary and use it as your guide to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun. And remember, many of the activities are completely free!
