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.

So why not come along and share a little festive cheer, while raising money for a great local cause?

The concert will include a selection of carols and readings to get you in the Christmas spirit. The carols will include some of the most popular tunes for the audience to join in with, as well as some old and new favourites.

If you’ve never heard the choir before, then be prepared to be blown away by our quality and love of music-making.

The Henley Standard has previously said that our ‘singing is beautiful and faultless’, while judges from the Choir of the Year described it as a ‘great, warm sound, very precise and well focused’ and ‘full of vitality – I love the richness and verve of the performance’.

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’.

Reading’s Aldworth Philharmonic launches dance project with world premiere
Hip swinging, elegant, furious, wistful – Reading’s Aldworth Philharmonic Orchestra’s latest dance inspired performance will span all these moods and more, as well as premiering an exciting new piece. At 7.30pm on Saturday 4th February, the beautiful Great Hall at the University of Reading’s London Road campus, will play host to what promises to be an exhilarating event.

During its 15-year history, APO has commissioned and premiered nearly 4 hours of new music by talented young composers – an outstanding feat for an orchestra made up entirely of volunteers.
The very first winner of APO’s Young Composers’ Award back in 2003 was Reading-based composer Roger May. He’s since worked with the orchestra several times, most recently on the #APOpictures project, which was shortlisted in the inaugural Reading Cultural Awards ‘performance of the year’ category.
This time, Roger has been commissioned to write a series of short dances in various styles. But this won’t be the only time Reading audiences get to hear them. The orchestra plans to present a second performance in 2019 complete with live performances by local dancers.
The new dances will be performed alongside Danzon No. 2 by Mexican composer Gabriel Marquez, and Rachmaninov’s brilliant Symphonic Dances.
We really love classical music, and believe that the sight and sound of a live orchestra and choir is something to behold. If you’ve never attended a live classical performance, you can see this one FREE through our Concert Virgin scheme.
Tickets are £15 for adults (£13 concessions, £8 children), with a £3 discount on these prices for EARLY BIRD tickets, purchased before 14th January 2018.
