Over the bank holiday weekend, Nando’s made their highly anticipated return to the iconic Reading Festival. With a star-studded Nando’s stage lineup and a plethora of huge names choosing Nando’s as their meal of choice, the weekend was an enormous success.

Sir Spyro’s high-octane Grime set, Nia Archives stellar Jungle set, introduced by none other than Chicken Shop Date’s Amelia Dimoldenberg, an energetic set from Country Dons, French The Kid’s huge crowd, singing back every word, and a magnetic session from Guardian-one-to-watch South London rapper Jords.

For a Reading festival only, Nando’s are back with an exclusive l menu, as well as serving up your favourite menu items – from wings to grilled chicken or great imitator wraps, and a selection of sides and desserts.
