Please support the festival organisers Heavy Pop and their charity partner Reading Mencap get through Covid-19!
Posted 11th Nov 2020
Are You Listening? festival organiser Heavy Pop and their charity partner Reading Mencap are independently funded and the financial impact of the festival not going ahead in 2020 as a result of Covid-19 has been heavy on both organisations.
Local promoter Heavy Pop has lost 100% of its income through the cancellation or postponement of all its shows and festivals. If you would like to support them, you can join their brand new ‘Friends with Benefits’ membership that offers ticket discounts, free ticket draws, and 10% off local bars, cafes, restaurants, shops, breweries and Reading’s only 5 star hotel – and so much more! Find out more here.
Reading Mencap is set to lose around £10,000 from the postponement of this year’s festival. People with a learning disability have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 so they need your support more than ever, and the charity's work has never been more vital.
