Gigs around Wokingham borough and beyond – Friday May 19 to Bank Holiday Monday, May 29

The Echo
The Echo will perform at Broad Street Tavern in Wokingham

Each week, we print the biggest local gig guide you’ll find anywhere.

And now we’re bringing it in pixels to your computer. The reason? There’s too many gigs to fit in to our print edition, so we’ve had to be selective.The following gigs are all taking place within 10 miles of Wokingham’s town centre, including other towns and villages in the borough.

Are your gigs not listed here? Drop us an email at events@wokinghampaper.co.uk and we’ll add them here.

Gig listings are free – but you can support our mission to bring you the best local news, sport, entertainment and information by advertising your business in The Wokingham Paper. For more details, email advertising@wokinghampaper.co.uk
