Fun activities for all the family

We are currently planning the activities for this year's Town Meal, but here's a preview of some of the activities and entertainment you'll find in the fun packed Family Activities area at the Town Meal.

Reading Town Meal Great Veg Hunt

Great Vegetable HuntDuring the event children can take part in a Treasure Hunt. Look out for the table in the childrens' activity area to pick up your entry sheet. Many of the stalls will be displaying a letter. All you have to do is find the letter and write it on your sheet. You then need to unscramble the letters to make a sentence. Each completed entry will receive a certificate and a prize.
