ARE YOU LISTENING? FESTIVAL STATEMENT
In line with the Government’s response to the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic, rescheduling Are You Listening? Festival for later in the year has now become unavoidable.
The new date for Are You Listening? Festival will be Saturday 10th October 2020, when we hope things will have improved enormously and we can all come together to enjoy live music again.
We’re very pleased that most of our line-up will still be performing on the new date and we will make further announcements on that very soon.
Please note: all tickets remain valid for the new date. If you’re unable to make the new date, you can request a refund for the price of the ticket from the point of purchase.
We have put Tier 2 tickets back on sale as our way of saying ‘thank you’ for your continued support. If you have already purchased a Tier 3 ticket, we will give you a complimentary drink voucher at the Festival on 10th October.
Are You Listening? Festival depends on you, our lovely audience, to exist and to keep raising money for Reading Mencap, so please keep buying tickets. Just two weeks ago we were on track for another sell out edition.
Thank you for your continued support in these extraordinary times. Reading Mencap and people with learning disabilities will need your support now more than ever.
Please keep calm, be kind and stay safe!

A STATEMENT FROM ARE YOU LISTENING? FESTIVAL
With the W.H.O. declaring Coronavirus a pandemic, and following yesterday’s vague government statement, we are carefully monitoring the situation and how it will affect us.
Are You Listening? Festival is due to take place in six weeks and the situation is changing every day. It would be devastating for us and Reading Mencap if AYL? could not take place, so we are therefore looking at the possibility of rescheduling the festival, if it comes to that.
Please note: If you have a ticket, it will remain valid if we do need to reschedule. If you can’t make the rescheduled date, you will be able to request a refund on the price of your ticket.
Are You Listening? Festival depends on you, our lovely audience, to exist, so please keep buying tickets. Just last week we were on track for another sell out edition.
Thank you for your continued support and co-operation in these extraordinary times.
Reading Mencap and people with learning disabilities will need your support now more than ever.
Keep calm, wash your hands often and stay safe!
