5 Things To Do In Reading This Year

Dreading Poetry Slam

If you’re a fan of poetry, the open Mic slam poetry competition at the Global Cafe in Reading is the ideal event for you this February. Poets with a wide range of styles, themes, and subjects attend the event, which is free to watch. Those who perform there are given a total of three minutes to deliver a single poem, with the goal of impressing the audience and the judges.

So if you’re a fan of poetry, if you’re a new poet, or if you’re just interested in doing something different, consider attending February’s Dreading Poetry Slam in the Global Cafe.

Watch The Kaiser Chiefs

This year on the 6th of February, the Kaiser Chiefs will be appearing at the Reading Hexagon. This band has won numerous awards throughout the years, including the 2006 Brit Awards for British Rock Act, British Live Act, and British Group. Additionally in 2007 their song Ruby won best music video at the Q awards, whilst also being nominated for best track.

So if you’re a fan of Britpop and the sounds of the early 00’s, get yourself a ticket to see these superstars, and don’t forget to book your Reading taxi travel early to avoid disappointment.

Organise Something Special For Valentine's Day

For those unsure what to organise for their partner this year, how about a romantic escape for two? For example, Skiddle has a Valentine's Day package deal including an overnight stay with lots of romantic activities and extras, including chocolate dipped strawberries, a romantic Valentine's dinner, and a 25 minute treatment at Esprit Wellness & Spa facilities.

This package deal includes everything you need for a romantic get-away for you and your partner. All that's left to organise is your transport to the hotel, so boost the level of luxury with VIP taxi travel from Loddon Cars. Our VIP and executive travel services include transport in a vehicle from our VIP Fleet, for example an Audi A8 or a BMW 7 Series.

Enjoy Some Stand Up Comedy

If you’re a fan of dark humour and jokes about “all kinds of terrible things” perhaps a trip to see Jimmy Carr’s new show Terribly Funny at the Hexagon on February 19th is for you. The popular comedian has hosted a wide range of television programs including 8 Out of 10 Cats, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Fix, and much more. He has also appeared on number television series including Have I Got News For You, QI, and was described as “the worst driver we’ve ever had” on the television show Top Gear.

However, if Jimmy Carr’s performance doesn’t interest you, but you’re still interested in watching a stand up comedy performance, how about seeing Rhod Gilbert’s The Book of John? After a 6 year break from stand-up the multi-award winning Welsh comedian has returned to the stage with his new show. Praised for his storytelling and his no nonsense approach to comedy, Rhod will be performing at the Hexagon this June on the 29th.

The Charity funs a wide range of projects for children living outside of the UK, for example they make a difference to the lives of innocent orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa.
