The photographers participating in this theme have sent us striking images of the widest range of species, from elephants to insects. Many of the images in this exhibition highlight the relationships that species have with their habitats. What shines through is the photographers’ admiration and empathy with the subject, together with their sheer joy and sense of privilege of being able to photograph them.

We hope this exhibition will encourage our visitors to make a personal commitment to help preserve our biosphere and its fauna. After all, most of our genes are also found in many animals. It is ignorant of us to ignore our true nature.

WILDLIFE OF THE WORLD 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

Dracula

Friday 8 December

The Barn, Goosecroft, Purley on Thames, Berkshire RG8 8DR

Doors open 7.00pm, start 7.30pm

1897. Transylvania. A lone English solicitor makes an ill-fated visit to an important client at a remote and mysterious castle. Soon afterwards, Count Dracula moves to London, where a bizarre plague begins to stalk its inhabitants.

Can an intrepid team led by maverick-doctor, Professor Abraham Van Helsing prevent the infamous Count from getting his fangs into everyone before his grip over the people of London proves fatal? An atmospheric tale of maidens in distress, dark nights and
vampires is here presented by Rain or Shine as you’ve never seen it before…

Hailed last year as ‘a delicious mirthfest’ Rain or Shine will be raising the stakes by expanding on their new brand of ‘Morecambe & Wise-ish comedy’ style for another season of mystery, mayhem, but above all multi-role madness! The production is organised by Project Purley, Purley’s local history society and you can book your tickets via David Downs on 0118 942 4167 for a fang-tastic evening with lots of bite. Tickets are £10.00 for an adult and £6.00 for a child (under 15). As usual profits from the evening will go to local good causes.

How speed dating in Reading works
A great event to go to is Speed Dating in Reading. How it works is our friendly professional hosts will greet you and they will settle you in by briefly explaining the format of the Speed Dating evening. The Speed Dating in Reading will commence with the speed dating then taking place for the remainder of the evening.

How many dates will I get at a Reading Speed Dating event?
You will normally get between twelve and fifteen dates depending on the venue location at one of our Speed Dating in Reading events. Occasionally we go up to twenty dates. Any more and you would probably be exhausted.

What if I like someone at the Speed Dating in Reading event?
If you like someone at the Reading Speed Dating event, simply enter a tick on your Speeding Ticket corresponding to the person you like to indicate you may want to see that person again. The following day you can either sign in to the web site and enter your choices directly, or call the office and one of the team will enter your ticks for you to match you up with others from the Speed Dating in Reading.
The Speed Dating in Reading is a speed dating event brought to you by Slow Dating

Blackeyed Theatre revives its highly-acclaimed production of John Godber’s classic comedy about life at a struggling ‘sink school’ for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Featuring breathtaking ensemble performances and a bang-up-to-date soundtrack, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good. Will Mr Nixon abandon his students for a green and pleasant Grammar school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions? Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, Teechers is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.
Adults £15, Concessions £13, School groups £9, Neighbours £9
