A JOYOUS celebration will return to the streets of Reading this coming May Bank Holiday Monday.

The popular Reading Carnival promises to deliver feel-good music, cultural delights and a colourful procession.

What's happening? 

Organised by Reading Caribbean Culture Group, this year's event gets started at midday and entertainment will continue until around 7pm.

The procession starts on Great Knollys Street, before travelling to Prospect Park for the main event.

Reading Carnival returned in 2017 after facing funding problems and has enjoyed two hugely-successful years since then.

Reading Chronicle:

When does it start?

Performances will start at Prospect Park from midday and there will be a range of dishes available to purchase.

A procession of floats, musicians and dancers will entertain crowds throughout the day, celebrating the cultural diversity in the town.

Financial problems prevented the event from running after 2014, with lottery funding making the 2017 return a possibility.
