Hi Everyone

We received a letter today from a Mr Passmore of Reading who says "I just won a fiver on a scratch card".  We'd like to send our congratulations, Mr Passmore.  And you win another £5 for having your letter mentioned in this week's little update.  Although there is a good chance it will get lost in the post.  A very good chance.  Almost a certainty, in fact.  Actually, the post office has just called and confirmed the your fiver has just gone missing.  Sorry about that

And without any further ado, here's what we Have in store at the Rising Sun this weekend.

Things are a little bit quiet again this time around, but on Sunday it's time for another 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. 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! If you play an instrument, bring it along! Think of the evening as a cross-creative spectrum jam night.

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

And also on Tuesday, we pay host to it's sister show IRREGULAR OPEN STAGE, which also starts at 7pm and again, is 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!)
