WhitFest is changing: Aspire 2 and Whitley Excellence Cluster are delighted to launch WhitFest Showcase, a wonderful new initiative to showcase the arts and celebrate our community in Whitley.
The WhitFest Showcase finale event will take place at South Reading Community Hub on 1st March 2019. It will be an entertaining evening of creative performances and art exhibitions, community togetherness and celebration – a platform to showcase and share Whitley arts.
