We’ve got a weekend packed with acts as part of this year’s Fringe, all equally unique.

Yes, it’s that time of year again – the ever-growing Reading Fringe Festival is coming very soon. Between the 19th and 23rd of July Reading will be turned into a hub of theatrical entertainment, in a variety of thrilling venues with something for everyone to enjoy. And we’ll be taking part again this year, with a smorgasbord of events on Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd, featuring faces old and new to the centre.

Friday 21st July

9pm - Maria Peters - The Science of Cringe

What makes a human cringe? What even *is* it? And what could we achieve if we ignored it? Are you cringing reading this? Would a Dad joke help?

It's an experiment. Behavioural science, character comedy & storytelling collide.
