Reading Abbey Ruins

Saturday 8 September,  6.45-11 PM

Celebrate the end of summer in the Abbey with live music and atmospheric illuminations. Enjoy our headline act, the multi-instrumental Flamingods plus special guests Febueder + Limpopo Groove, arranged by Are You Listening? festival and Reading Fringe Festival. As light begins to fall, watch the ruins be brought to life with an exciting and dynamic light installation, which echoes the live music and the crescendo of the evening entertainment. Designer Stuart Melrose has taken inspiration from the Abbey ruins themselves to create a spectacular finale to our summer of reopening events.

The event will be the evening finale of the Reading Abbey Revealed summer programme. It celebrates the reopening of Reading Abbey after almost 10 years of closure and extensive conservation work, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Reading Borough Council.

Ticket price: £15 (Programme subject to change)
