Reading has a bustling town centre with a range of places to meet with friends, grab a drink and a bite to eat, or just hang out and relax. Check out Reading’s brand new community space, The Biscuit Factory, or drop into Spinners for a game of crazy golf, interactive darts or bowling. Reading Festival is one of the best-known festivals in the UK, with over 87,000 fans flocking to see some of the biggest names in music. For six years, we partnered with festival organisers, Festival Republic, to give some of our students the opportunity to work backstage at the event. Working alongside the nation’s leading press publications – interviewing chart-topping bands and reviewing headline acts – our students have interned as content producers, working behind the scenes with industry experts.
