Hi Everyone

After a somewhat busy August by our standards, it’s nice to take a little break.  Personally, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offline and at some point I’m might just see if I can find the much-fabled and only known surviving episode of Last of the Summer Wine that doesn’t revolve around Howard and Marina (with Compo, Clegg at al as the subplot)

However, here at the Rising Sun, we still find some time to have an event for your delectation, it’s on Sunday, and it just happens to be OPEN PAGE/OPEN STAGE

A monthly collaborative event, for writers, artists, musicians, and everyone in between! The premise is an extension of the traditional ‘open mic’, however the focus is on words and collaboration.

We want people to come and showcase their art in a safe and comfortable environment, with the aid of the Arts Centre’s beautiful acoustics and architecture.

If you’re an artist, bring your work early on so we can hang it around.
If you write – poetry, prose, songs, plays – bring a piece or an excerpt. Actors – come and practice for auditions!

Some writers lack the confidence to read themselves, so the idea is to have a standby ‘cast’ for pieces with shy voices. If you play an instrument, bring it along! Think of the evening as a cross-creative spectrum jam night. The aim is to build people’s confidence and create something new! And just to meet the brilliant people we might not otherwise know about

We’re open at 7pm and it’s absolutely FREE!

That’s everything for another week, just to remind you that we are, as always, at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST (If you pop it into your satnav or Google, we shall magically appear!)
