Cllr Adele Barnett-Ward, Lead Councillor for Leisure and Culture said: "The Forbury Band Concert season is always a highlight of summer in Reading: an opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre and relax in our beautiful Victorian gardens listening to live music."

"Why not bring a blanket and a picnic and make a day of it?"
