Sizzling in the sun: Newport Road street party 2017
Saturday 17 June 2017 – another excellent street party for the Big Lunch weekend, and with the temperature reaching 29 degrees this one was our first real scorcher!
Splat the Rat and Readipop’s drumming workshop, both favourites from last year, were back again, and we had much more live music – this time from an acoustic band from New Hope, a capella singing from the Voices of Reading community choir and an excellent set from covers band Sunday Replay. Plenty of activities for the kids with loads of help from New Hope and another fiendish quiz courtesy of David and Jonathan with prizes provided by the Standard Tandoori and Tesco.
Many thanks to everyone who helped and the residents of Newport Road for hosting. And special thanks to the Moderation for the delicious free barbecue food and Thai curry.
