The requirement is for acts which represent the unique personality of Reading, last no more than 30 minutes and can be performed in a shop, café or business. The day by day advent calendar events will raise money for local charities.

Applications to participate should be made via the online application form which includes the opportunity to bid for funding of up to £1,000 for staging the event. The application deadline is 17 October and the selection of winning entries will be made by 22 October.
