Broad St. Mall is bringing a touch of the seaside to Reading, for a whole month of FREE summer fun.
Bring the kids to ‘Reading Pier’, where they can skip along the boardwalk and rock up at one of the beach huts to enjoy some seaside-themed colouring in, whenever they like!
Then, every Friday throughout August there will be activities for kids to enjoy…
Friday 3rd August, 11am - 4pm
Rock designing and FREE ice lollies!
Come and enter our ‘Design a Stick of Rock’ competition, with free rock for all those who take part, and seaside essentials such as beach balls and buckets & spades awarded for the best designs. Plus! The seaside ice cream bike will be out, giving away lollies to children.
