Easter Events & Escapes

Whether you’re feeling festive or just need a break from studying, there’s plenty going on around Reading to keep you occupied over the Easter holidays.

If you’re on campus and haven’t signed up for the Easter Café event happening at Park Lounge, Wednesday 28th March between 12-2pm, there’s still time! Your Halls Life is serving up traditional hot cross buns, tea, coffee, and a range of other snacks. The event is free, so why not take a break and stop by?

If you want an alternative event to get your weekend going, there’s a Vintage Fun Fair in Prospect Park, Reading, that opens on Friday, 30th March, from midday to 8pm. Entry is free, and there’s a fireworks display happening on Saturday, March 31st for you to enjoy too.

Feeling bad about not sticking to your resolution to work out? Or maybe you just want to work off all the chocolate. Either way, there’s a Fulbrook Fitness Bootcamp happening on Saturday, March 31st from 9:15am – 10am at the Beansheaf Community Centre in Linear Park. It’s a mixture of exercises for all abilities, so you don’t need to be a regular gym-goer to go along, and you never know, you might just find your new favourite class.

Fancy taking part in an Easter Egg hunt? The Rowbarge has got you covered. April 1st, Easter Sunday, from 10am – 12pm there’s a free Easter Egg hunt. And since you’re there, stay for lunch, and make a day of it!

Last but not least, if you just want to kick back and enjoy a lazy day indoors, The Thirsty Bear has you covered. On the first Sunday of every month, they host a Secret Cinema upstairs in their venue, screening films back-to-back all day long. They’re family friendly, and they supply the popcorn (as well as their incredible pizza), so if you want to wrap up your week with a movie binge, the show starts at 2pm on Sunday, 1st April.

How will you be spending your Easter break? Let us know!
