Great things to do in Berkshire this weekend (16, 17 and 18 November): art exhibitions, walks, concerts, theatre, places to visit and other events and ideas.

Details of events correct at time of publishing.

Rich Hall - Friday 16 November

The Corn Exchange, Market Place, Newbury

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever.

Auction - Friday 16 November

The Plough, Eastbury

All proceeds going directly to National Aninal Welfare Trust.

Farmers’ Market - Saturday 17 November

Cattle Market, Great Knollys Street, Reading

Craft Fair - Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November

South Hill Park Arts Centre

Enjoy some of the UK’s best handmade crafts throughout the Mansion and Wilde Theatre. Artists join us from around the country to show and sell their range of designs.

Christmas Market - Sunday 18 November


Attractions include dozens of stalls bearing Christmas gifts and street food, Sunninghill-style! Also for the hungry, there’s a beer tent hot and food stalls. The fayre always has an air of excitement and Christmases past about it. Stall holders and visitors can often be seen in Victorian costume.
