Reading's Digital Advent Calendar

Digital daily doses of Christmas cheer

1-24 December at 12:30pm

We can’t bring the Living Advent Calendar to the streets of Reading this year. So we’re delivering Christmas cheer direct to your homes instead with Reading’s Digital Advent Calendar, a series of 24 videos delivered throughout December on Reading Culture Live.

There’ll be plenty to enjoy for all the family, including music, poetry, comedy, drama, animations, things to make and do, fun for kids and so much more. Expect a visit from Santa, traditional carols, exciting new stories and bold new takes on festive favourites. All delivered by creative artists and communities from all corners of Reading, and all in support of local artists and charities.

And just like a real advent calendar, it’s a new surprise every day!

  1. Reading's music scene covers Do They Know It's Christmas
  2. Fun for kids as Story Scientists Nook & Cranny write a letter to Father Christmas
  3. A Cappella group Readiophonics come a-caroling
  4. A super festive adventure as The Five Potatoes of Reading Save Christmas!

So remember to check in on Reading Culture Live at 12:30pm throughout December and see what’s behind the next calendar door...
