Hi Everyone

I was in JD Sports the other day (other sports shops are available) and I asked one of the people working there if he knew the price of a rucksack, and he replied pleasantly with a definitive and final-sounding "I'm sorry, I have no idea."  It's quality customer service like this that makes visiting shops rather than shopping online an absolute pleasure!

And now that's out of the way, here's what we have for you delectation at the Rising Sun this weekend

Saturday morning brings another BOOKFACE BOOKCLUB
An informal artists book group. Ideal for sharing your latest book finds and creations, sometimes includes art and craft activities for book making

We're open from 10am-12noon and it's only £4

Saturday afternoon sees another YELLOW TEAPOT CAFE

The Yellow Teapot Cafe might do everything a cafe might do. You can buy tea, coffee and soft drinks, biscuit and cake. But we are an event, a haven for those who like to relax, look at books, be creative and drink tea.

We're open from 1pm to 3pm and it'll cost you nothing to come in!

And on Sunday, to wind down the weekend, we have another helping of TANGO SELECT

Tango Select play classical tangos, milongas and vals including many favourite songs from tango's "Golden Age" composers.  Perfect music to dance to but also a great way to while away a Sunday afternoon if you love listening to inspiring world music.

We're open from 3pm to 6pm and it'll only cost you £8 to get in

And don't forget, Monday night is QUIZ NIGHT! Are you up to the challenge?

Join us for an 8pm kick off. £1.50 per person, max 4 per team, winner gets the pot!

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!)
