We're no longer holding a Love Unites festival hosted by Reading Pride, in its normal form in Kings Meadow, on Saturday, 5th September 2020.
We understand that this is very disappointing, but the safety of our attendees and volunteers is our primary concern. Running a large festival and implementing social distancing measures in an open space was not considered safe nor feasible.
Reading Pride has grown to one of the largest Pride events in the region attracting over 15,000 people over the course of the day and 2,500 participants in our parade. Reading Pride is run by dedicated volunteers and it is our passion that makes it such a fantastic event.
It is a great place to sell goods and promote businesses to visitors from Berkshire and across the country. A whole range of organisations join us each year, increasing brand awareness, promoting good work and selling individual goods and services. You can join us with a range of pitches to suit your needs, with all proceeds going to support the Reading Pride festival.
We look forward to hopefully being back in September 2021, bigger and better than ever. If you'd like to keep informed about our plans for the marketplace please sign up for our newsletter.
