Christmas Festivities in Reading

reading Christmas Festival

Tis the season to be jolly tra la la la la, la la la la! OK, so Christmas isn’t here quite yet but with only 6 weeks until the big day Reading Town Centre is gearing up to commence with its festive celebrations.

This year The Oracle Shopping Centre and The Broad Street Mall will both be holding separate events to celebrate the time old tradition of turning on the Christmas lights. Marking the start of the celebrations The Broad Street Mall Christmas light switch on will take place on Saturday 14th November, commencing at 4pm. There will be a host of celebrities taking part with all to be revealed on Reading’s own Jack FM.

The Oracle’s Christmas Glitz event also returns to the Riverside on Saturday, 14th November at 7pm. There will be a huge firework display and music hosted by Heart FM’s breakfast show presenters Michele and Matt. Both events are free to attend but wristbands must be obtained beforehand.

So, if you’re looking to get into the Christmas spirit, Reading Town Centre may just be the place to head. But please remember if you do attend, make sure you wrap up warm and enjoy the mulled wine responsibly!
