Reading Festival safe

The future of the Reading Festival appears safe after organisers Festival Republic bought 65-acres of the site. This brings Festival Republic's land ownership of the site to 191 acres. The rest belongs to Reading Borough Council. Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn said "This is a very important piece of land and acquiring it was essential to the continuation of the Reading Festival." 
Let's hope they improve the quality of the facilities now they own the site - and build a bridge across the river to the car park!
