Get Directions

Most people know about the Reading Festival but did you know in the 13th century the whole of England was once ruled from Reading or that five different types of potatoes are named after the town, or that it once had the nickname as Biscuitopolis? No, neither did we but it will now also be known as one of our chosen venues in Berkshire for Prosecco in the Park. The large close-cut grass of Christchurch Meadows hugs the River Thames and is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy a cold glass of Prosecco.
