Hi Everyone

Have you seen our YouTube page? 

It's great, even if we say so ourselves!  We've been quite busy at the Rising Sun, uploading fantastic new videos of events at the centre, and we're also collecting existing videos of events, workshops and good times over the past few years into some easy-to-watch playlists.

Check it out and click on "subscribe" so you can stay updated with new videos as they're uploaded at....


You might be interested to know that once we reach the grand total of 100 subscribers, we can change our not so memorable URL to something that trips off the tongue a little easier!  You know you want to.  Go On!  Go on! Go on!  Go on! Go on etc

And now we've got that out of the way, it's tiome to let you know what's happening at the Rising Sun this weekend

On Friday, we have CLUB VELOCITY

Another fine selection of beat combos for the enjoyment of us all courtesy of Velocity HQ and it looks just so:-

Not only are they the best live band in Reading, but probably one of the best live bands in the UK. They are more punk than you.  They deal in have-at-you-sirrah country-bluegrass-alt rocknroll.They sweat.They have beards (not in some irritating Hoxton fashion) None of these kids ride a penny farthing. No sir. No nonsense. Not pretending.

They might hail some place called Oxford but you'll struggle to find a better husband and wife duo than August List. They are more punk than youwith a neat line in his and hers two piece-punkncountry-roll

Not only a certified vampire slayer (can you get this double-checked Gary?  There's a good fellow)  but he's also the best singer-songwrtier in Windsor with a wide variety of heart felt uplifting anti-folk punk anthems

We're open at 8pm, and it'll cost you £5 on the door or £4 in advance from www.wegottickets.co.uk

On Saturday afternoon we bring you another helping of VINYL CLUB

Vinyl Club, I hear you ask?  Well, it's a great opportunity to listen to a record undisturbed and the chance to discover new music!  Come and relax at Vinyl Club, as we peacefully and silently listen to two records back-to-back in their fully intended glory

Each month somebody brings along two records to listen to, followed by a short discussion.  Anyone can join in, and the bar will be open for you to grab a tea, coffee, or beer to better help you relax with the music.

If you'd like to bring along some records for a future Vinyl Club then drop a line to Guy Siviour at info@risingsun-artscentre.co.uk

We're open from 1pm to 3pm, and it's absolutely FREE!

FIESTA LATINA is taking a little rest this month

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!)
