After a highly successful opening at Reading’s new railway station, the exhibition moves to Broad Street Mall from Friday 25th October until Sunday 3rd November.
With photos documenting every stage of the festival from clearing the fields of livestock, to the festival weekend itself to the eventual clear our, don’t miss your chance to gain an exclusive insight into one of the world’s best loved festivals.
“I’m no idiot” said Malcolm “clearly I was aware that events such as Reading Festival do not just happen, but even I was taken aback with the sheer scope of the operation. The level of professionalism displayed at all levels amazed me and it was easy to see why there was such a high level of pride by all involved in the event. As such I made it my quest to capture it in such a way, as to highlight why we in Reading should be so proud of this annual event, and the kudos it brings to each and every one of us.”
And if that wasn’t enough, ALL profits from the exhibition will go towards Festival Republic charitable causes.
Malcolm Bassett-Smith’s ’Reading Festival Photographic Exhibition’ is being run in co-operation with Festival Republic and assisted by BBC Radio Berkshire, First Great Western, Broad Street Mall and Reading Borough Council.
