23 Forbury Road
Reading

RG1 3JH

Historically we were always trying to capture the fleeting image, one that reflected reality as we saw it. By contrast, in a world of iPhones and Instagram we now often see images that present an altered sense of reality. Although photography is a creative art form in itself, the concept of this theme showcases the results achieved when camera settings, editing techniques and creative angles are used to the photographers advantage.
All art is subjective and we fully expect visitors to be challenged by the work on display. Some images may be considered beautiful, while others are thought-provoking; some may even challenge your perception on what constitutes a photographic image.
CREATIVITY is a touring photographic exhibition, created and supported by The Photographic Angle.
Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change.
Disabled visitors are advised to check with us before visiting an exhibition so that suitable access can be provided.
PLEASE NOTE : that visitors to this exhibition can view images at both 3 Forbury Place, 23 Forbury Road, Reading, RG1 3JH & Abbey Gardens, Abbey Street, Reading, RG1 3BA which are just a short walk away from each other.

Dick Whittington

Milestone Centre
Northbrook Road
Caversham
Berkshire
RG4 6PF

Dick Whittington wouldn’t be the same without Boots the cat. Boots wouldn’t be the same without fleas and an interlopperder. A what? I hear you ask. Maybe you should ask Captain Kirk. Better still, ask Spock. Boots has a definite case of ear envy in that direction.
Confused? It’s simple really. Dick and his disreputable cat have just about given up on making their fortune but get one last chance. For some reason best known to the author they end up in Egypt. Despite Three wise men and Lez the Fez, all does not go well. Pursued by the vengeful Watchman, they vanish as if in to thin air, to go boldly where no panto character has gone before (hint, hint!) As expected, Dick wins the day – with a great deal of help, and a cup of tea.
This highly original but classic panto should keep kids of all ages and decades, entertained, bemused and enchanted in equal measure, but watch out. IT’S BEHIND YOU!
