Reading Show 2021: CANCELLED
It's with regret that, once again, due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have again had to cancel our Reading Show in May 2021.
At this point, we are still waiting for the Government to release the "roadmap" to recovery, and it seems certain that indoor events will be one of the last things that will be allowed to go ahead.
The Rivermead Centre is currently closed, under lockdown guidance. Once the Rivermead Centre reopens, we will continue our dialogue with them to look at the booking for 2022, something that we have already pencilled in the diary. We know the Centre is due for redevelopment in the coming years on the same site, and we are already working with the Centre management to find out how will affect our plans in detail.
In the meantime, we hope that you are keeping safe and well, and we look forward to a time, hopefully in the not too distant future, where we can once again enjoy our hobby together.
List of Traders that were due to attend in 2021: thank you for your support. We hope to see you in 2022.
