Summer is here! (Or has possibly been and gone with the recent heat wave). We know that families are often looking for things to do so we’ve put together a list of family friendly events happening in and around West Berkshire throughout July and August (and the beginning of September). We can’t claim to know about absolutely everything that’s going on so if you’re holding an event and would like us to add it to the list or if you know of anything that we’ve missed, please get in touch. You can also check out our events calendar which has handy day to day listings of activities in the area. You may also be interested in our summer holiday activities, classes & workshops guide.

Events may be subject to change or cancellation so we would advise checking that all details are correct before going along.
