16th October: First Guided Walk from Walk & Talk in Reading!

What to do in Reading

16th October is going to be a BIG day. On that Sunday I’m inviting all those passionate about walking, urban walking, story telling and Reading to join me on a walk. Not just a walk but walk & talk – we’ll venture the streets of Reading, find out hidden stories and history and have fun. We’ll meet at Palmer Park Library at 12noon and walk through the side streets from London Road down to town centre. We’ll finish nowhere else but at Harvest Feast Artisan Food Market, organised by Laura from Pop-Up Reading at Milk Bar. There’s going to be a lot going on!
