Reading Caribbean Cultural Group in association with RG2 Radio, Reading, are hosting the Annual Reading Carnival on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st May 2021, between 12pm and 9pm, with a Spectacular Virtual Event.


The celebration of Caribbean cultural heritage together with local community heritage has existed in Reading as a street festival since the inaugural Carnival took place in 1977, but the COVID-19 pandemic means that the event will take place virtually this year.


The event will showcase a Steel Band, Calypsonian, DJs, dancers, costume competition and international Congo line to headline this internet extravaganza in celebration of the 44 th year of the Carnival.

RG2 Radio's Station Manager, Charles Carrington enthused, “ It is only a year since the radio station's first broadcast so everyone at RG2 Radio is immensely proud to be working with R.C.C.G. in hosting the 2021 Reading Virtual Carnival.


The “After Carnival Party” continues after 9pm with RG2 Radio.” The Whitley-based community internet radio station currently broadcasts over 70 hours per week of music, news, discussions and interview shows.


The most recent carnival in Reading occurred in 2019, - the 2020 carnival was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and was attended by over 3,000 revellers and comprised of a road march and music, food, and activities in Prospect Park Reading.
