Embrace the seasonal spirit this Christmas with make Reading – an 11 day festive celebration of Berkshire’s very best makers, designers, recyclers, art, textiles & handmade brought to you by jelly arts.

On Thursday 27th November, jelly brings a Christmas fair with a difference to Reading Town Centre, with tips on how to make your Christmas the most special. Join in the many creative workshops on offer, from advent inspired to Christmas wreaths, to making the most of your vintage style for the seasonal parties ahead, as well as gift inspiration in the gallery pop-up shop with an array of gorgeous handmade gifts on offer.

This year, jelly is delighted to be working with Berzerk Productions who will be creating a magical and creative Santa experience that will leave your children smiling, full of festive cheer.

The event is designed to bring local artists & makers together to create something magical for the festive season and with plenty going on for all ages, there is something for everyone to enjoy. If you loved our Aunt Elsie events, then you will enjoy this, we will be creating a gallery style shop fitted out Aunt Elsie style.

To add to the delights, the wonderful Artisan Food Market will also be alongside us on Town Hall Square, so even more of a reason to pop down!  Good food is at the heart of a great Christmas and Reading’s fabulous Christmas Food Market will be serving food from around the world for 11 days. Visit Town Hall Square to try traditional Christmas fayre, stock up on cheese and Christmas cake for Christmas, enjoy mulled wine and hot sausages or waffles or take a culinary trip to another part of the world

make Reading launches on Thursday 27 November at Reading Town Hall and runs until Sunday 7 December, 11am–8pm.

A full programme of activities and the artists involved will be released soon, but for more information please visit back here or follow hashtag #makeRDG on social media.

make Reading is created by jelly as part of ‘Super Cool Christmas in Reading’.
