How does it make you feel...?
How does it make you feel…?

A call out to Reading musicians!

We’ve setup this microsite to share songs, and meanings, for the ‘How does it make you feel…?’ event, which will be online at 7pm on Saturday 14 November. And part of the Reading Climate Festival 2020.

Please get your free tickets for the event here:

It promises to be an interesting and heartfelt conversation so we really hope you can join us on the night. If you are a musician, with links to Reading, and you find yourself moved by the issue of Climate Change, we would love you to take part too. Please click here to introduce one of your songs. We’ll be going through them on Mon 2nd Nov.

As former chair of the climate change partnership, I have spoken with a lot of people about climate change. Beneath the science and the politics is a highly emotional subject. I feel this as a song writer as well: it’s theme I keep coming back to.

In this event for the Reading Climate Festival, I will be joined by Fiona Talkington (from BBC Radio 3), and we will be looking forward to speaking to some fellow musicians from Reading’s excellent music scene. We want to talk about how it makes us feel. We will listen to some original music. And we will pick up on how we can help energise Climate Action in our town.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Chris Beales & Fiona Talkington
