Tribute Night: Then That’s What We Called Music 1991

Free admission with donations collected during the event - suggested £5 minimum

Saturday 9 February 1991: a former Victorian temperance house on Silver Street flings its doors open to the people of Reading and announces its new mission as a participatory arts space.  THE RISING SUN INSTITUTE IS BORN! 

25 years on, the Rising Sun Arts Centre continues to thrive and engage as a community hub and an indispensable part of cultural life in Reading.  As part of the centre’s 25th birthday celebrations, we attempt to recreate the musical flavour of the Rising Sun’s first year.

Come and join in the fun and listen to a varied bunch of local musicians performing songs from the year that gave birth to the Rising Sun.
