Many things are changing at jelly – firstly we have left Jacksons and fit out begins on our next home in Broad Street Mall. The website is also changing too, to make things easier so bear with us whilst we get everything into the right places.
As well as change, we still have plenty going on.
Fun-filled workshops, face-painting, an Easter egg trail, and the chance to win a family trip to Lego land, are all part of the egg-citing entertainment lined up across an exclusive week of activities during the Easter school break.
Monday 10th April – Saturday 15th April , ‘Hop Along’ Easter Kids Club
• Get creative with FREE arts & crafts workshops from 11am – 3pm daily. Jelly Reading will host drop-in style sessions to help keep your little ones entertained over the holidays. Topics include bunny mask-making and 3D cards.
• Take part in an Easter egg hunt, and find hidden our chocolate rewards in store windows, while shopping in the centre.
• Free face-painting and chocolate giveaways are also part of the “eggstra-special” activities available.
• On top of all this, customers can also take part in the chance to win a family trip to Lego land Windsor throughout the course of the week.
Candice Chambers, marketing officer for Broad Street Mall said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Jelly Reading this Easter.
“With all of the amazing entertaining activities we have lined up, we’re confident it will be a huge hit with families. It’s set to be great week, with an extensive programme of activities, free of charge, guaranteed to help tire out the kids ahead of a relaxing Easter Sunday !”

The following week, Saturday 22 and Sunday 23, we are delighted to be running The Lost Museum, informal drawing workshops throughout Reading Contemporary Art Fair.
This is an opportunity for all ages to delve into The Lost Museum, a place where things have been lost and found… and through drawing they are ready to become part of your story. Led by Lisa-marie Gibbs and artists friends, we invite you to join us at The Lost Museum to take inspiration, from our collections of objects and use them to create drawings using, collage, stitch and print.
The objects we have owned remind us of who we are, why we’re here and where we’ve been. When we look at something, or acquire something the object is one half of it, the other half comes from us, the catalyst that triggers all kinds of ideas, feelings, memories and associations.
WORKSHOPS & ACTIVITIES
The workshops are free of charge and suitable for all ages and abilities- under 5’s will require adult supervision.
Admittance to the workshops is free to all attendees of Reading Contemporary Art Fair – full details on tickets are available here
We have a limit number of 2 for 1 tickets, please get in touch if you are interested.
