Christmas Shopping in Reading

Shopping in the city is always a treat, no matter what time of the year you visit. Reading has a huge selection of popular high street names, departments stores, high-end shopping and designer names represented on the high street. There is also a fantastic selection of independent and local retailers to choose from and encourage all our guests to support local wherever possible. You’ll find excellent quality and craftsmanship when you shop with smaller businesses, and it gives Christmas gifting a really personal touch. 

Panto in Reading

Panto has been a tradition for as long as we can remember. In fact, there has been some form of Panto in the UK dating back to the 16th century! We are spoiled for choice here with many excellent productions to choose from, each offering laughs, fantastic costumes, colourful characters and plenty of ‘He’s behind you!’. Visit Ebenezer Scrooge in a Christmas Carol in Reading Rep Theatre, The Snow Queen on South Street or a favourite –Beauty and the Beast in the Hexagon with children’s television star Justin Fletcher as Billy Pastry and Reading’s favourite Dame-Paul Morse as Nanny Pastry. You can even book signed or ‘relaxed’ performances for those with additional needs. 

Reading Twilight Trail

The Twilight Trail is back and better than ever! Twilight Trail: Biscuit Town returns to the Abbey Ruins and Forbury Gardens from 3-31 December 2021. Enjoy a biscuit-themed trail celebrating Reading’s link with the world-famous Huntley and Palmers biscuit factory. Enjoy hundreds of light installations, lanterns, illuminated trails and much more created by some of our most talented light-art pioneers. It’s a magical evening for all of the family. 

Reading Santa Run

Have you ever seen hundreds of Santa’s dashing along the streets of Reading? This year don your Father Christmas suit and join the gang for a festive 5KM around Reading Town Centre to raise money for amazing local charities this Christmas. There’s also a family-friendly 1KM Mini-Santa and Elf Run where prams, children, dogs and whoever else wants to take part are welcome. If you don’t fancy the run, join the crowds lining the streets cheering on their favourite Santa.

Winter Wonderland Reading

Reading Winter Wonderland is our premier Christmas destination with something to attract all ages. From November 13 to January 3, Hills Meadow by Reading Bridge turns into a festive playground with a great range of attractions. Thrill seekers can enjoy over 20 rides and other attractions like ice-skating are a great draw for families. For grownups, the Après Ski Bar is open with plenty of warming drinks, and for the little ones, Santa himself will be there in his grotto to welcome all of the boys and girls on the nice list.
