Club Velocity

Club Velocity is Reading's leading bandnight and has been happening at the Rising Sun Arts Centre since March 2003 hosting the likes of Bloc Party (before anyone cared – the band still claim it as one of their favourite venues), Elle Milano, Help She Can’t Swim, New Rhodes and so on. The Mail on Sunday showed up once. Chris Hufford (Manager of Radiohead/Supergrass) paid to get in and loved the centre. John Moore (Ex Jesus and Mary Chain) has been down once or twice. 

Club Velocity takes place every fourth Friday of the month.


Hi Everyone Things are a little quiet here at Rising Sun HQ.  So quiet in fact, that we have just the one event this weekend... However, it's a cracker, it's on Friday, and it just happens to be CLUB VELOCITY
Hi Everyone I do hope you're enjoying this somewhat unseasonal weather and not sweltering too much.  Excuse me a moment, I just need a cold shower (again)
Hi Everyone As sure as night follows day, or Tesco opening another shop six metres away from the shop they opened last month, it's time for another little update of what's in the store at the Rising Sun this weekend. On Friday, we bring you CLUB VELOCITY
Hi Everyone Hope you're "enjoying" the novelty of grey skies, rain and other things that many of us at Rising Sun HQ like to describe as "cricket weather". However, if you find such things a bit too depressing we have a number of things to cheer you up this weekend
