Rocking around the Christmas bus!

6 months ago Thu 21st Nov 2019

'The best way of spreading Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear...'

Come and join us on Saturday 30 November from 11-4pm outside the Town Hall for some festive fun!

Fernanda, our open top bus will be the platform for a day singing, rocking, and magical musical delights!
Come along and listen to Reading's best musical acts for free and get you in that Christmas spirit. Performing live will be the unaccompanied, Four Counties Kev, Rug, Hexx & Martin Walsh. With a wide variety of bands, there something for everyone! Grab a mince pie - or two - and enjoy this unexpected and exciting event!   

On top of this musical extravaganza, our bus will be festively dressed, and we will be handing out prizes to you all for free as part of the Reading Buses Grand Christmas Giveaway. We have even written to spirit of Christmas himself.. it wasn't easy, but we've managed to persuade the real Father Christmas to give up some of his time at this busy time of year and come along to our event!  

We simply cannot wait!

Why not make a day of it, after our event, why not check out Reading's Christmas Extravaganza and the Magical Wonderland at the Oracle which will end with a fireworks display from the top of the blade! With so much to do, what better why of getting to town than by bus. No parking metre and no car park queues! Plan your journey here.
