2nd Village Easter Music & Ale Festival

Following the success of last year’s inaugural event the Eldon Arms, The Retreat and The Lydhurst have teamed up once again to host a live music and real ale extravaganza over the Easter weekend…

villagefestBetween Good Friday and Easter Monday (25-28 March, 2016) the three pubs will showcase 21 live music acts over the four days and between them there will be around 20 real ales on offer. Having literally brought three dead pubs back to life on the eastern fringe of Reading town centre, Russell & Carolyn, Brian, Heath & Natasha; and their stellar crews at each of the three pubs, deserve all the support the people of Reading can give them.

Readers of this blog will know that Mr & Mrs Fueled by Beer have a particular soft spot for these pubs; we travel clear across town, passing pubs along the way, to visit what the pubs collectively represent: an oasis of good ale, good conversation, and good cheer in an eminently walkable ‘village’ situated in one of the town’s most historic neighborhoods. For a review of the 2015 event check out my post here.
