The Reading Midnight Run

Venue: Reading Town Centre (Directions)

Sold out


The Midnight Run is a walking, arts-filled, night-time cultural journey through urban spaces. It gathers strangers and local artists together to explore, play and create, whilst the city sleeps. The MNR aims to break down social barriers and provide a platform for established and emerging creatives, bringing moments of genuine interactive creativity.   

This special event will close the Reading on Thames Festival. In its second year, the Reading on Thames Festival celebrates the town's heritage, hidden and waterside spaces. Beginning at a secret location, Kit Caless will take you on a journey, guiding you through the lesser-known nooks and crannies of the town before ending in a hidden location at midnight. Come ready to explore, play and create. As always, in typical Midnight Run fashion, expect the unexpected and come to have fun.
