Things ain't what they used to be on the Great British bank holiday. The days of a windy walk along the prom are fading fast. Revellers at the Reading Rock festival (left) partied under cloudy skies and indulged in the usual mix of booze and balti from traders' stalls. Up the road in Newbury, environmental activists staged an anti-roads demonstration by cutting cars into slices in protest at the controversial Newbury Bypass (above). And in London (right), remnants from the punk era held their own nihilistic alternative festival at the Brixton Academy, known as 'F*** Reading'.
