Call for performers, events, artists and creatives for Reading’s Living Advent Calendar

Haslams window 1Set aside the chocolate and take your Advent calendar experience to the next level with the super cool and quirky Reading Living Advent Calendar in support of local charities. Twenty four different acts who truly represent Reading and its unique personality will come together this festive season to entertain shoppers in the town centre. Acts will be matched up with local businesses to surprise and delight the community.

Do you have an act or event that you would like the team to consider?

Act/events/performers/artists/creatives can do anything from musical performances to theatre; from storytelling to poetry; from films to shadowgraphy; from dance to craft making; from local history to folklore; from cookie decorating to live action game playing and everything in between. There are no rules around who can and can’t apply, all we ask is that you enter with the spirit of having fun!

**Key things to note**

1) activity will be 20-30 mins max.
2) activity will be delivered in the confines of a shop / cafe / business etc.
3) activity must be tech sufficient. That doesn't mean you can't have e.g. a mic etc, just that you'll need to sort all that yourself!

Need funding?

There is a pot of funding! If you would like to apply for funding please click here. Applications for funding of up to £1000 will be considered, however the pot is limited so only a small number of applicants will be awarded the maximum.
