Hi Everyone

Well it's been another week of unseasonal weather, another week where the people of Reading stare upwards looking confused at a that large, bright shiny thing in the sky that seems to have have appeared at the same time as the aforementioned bizarre meteorolgoical occurence, and... as I, your humble narrator, try to ascertain whether the blue sky outside is real or a mirage, it's time to let you know what's happening at the Rising Sun this very weekend.

On Friday, it's time for CLUB VELOCITY

It's the rip-roaring July instalment of Club Velocity gives you FOUR acts for your delectation this Friday and it looks just so...

Local living legend.What a voice and he deals in proper subject matter.
Reading/Oxford based forward thinking fierce folk.Debut Club Velocity show.

One off solo set by current Luke Paulo And The Grapefruit/The Ultimate End member.Using the baby grand piano.
A wonderful treat.  Do.Not.Miss.
Those in the know are claiming Dicky will be bigger than Adele.Signed to XL.Rick Rubin is rumored to be producing the debut album. Yowsa.

We're open at 8pm, and it'll cost you £5 on the door or £4 in advance from www.wegottickets.co.uk

(Please note that this gig is for ages 16 and over)

On Saturday. It's time for FIESTA LATINA

A little piece of Cuba hidden away in Reading. A relaxed and friendly Latin party with lots of Latin music so you can dance, or just socialise. You can expect plenty of Salsa, tango and whatever the mood suggests: bachata, milonga, merengue and reggaeton. Maybe more!
We’re open from 9pm and it’ll cost you a paltry £6.to get in

Finally on Sunday, we have CRASH TEST DRAMA

The Crash Test Drama group meet on the last Sunday of every month with great opportunities to create drama…
They can provide constructive feedback on your audition pieces, help you source new writing, or set up a workshop with other actors and a director.
If you've written a piece that you'd like to see acted out? We will throw some actors at you, perform it and provide feedback.
Cold readings, moved readings, targeted workshops and feedback sessions - all to help inspire your next writing project.
If you're looking for guidance on a specific area of acting or directing? We can arrange for an experienced actor or director to come along and work through it with you.
We're open from 6.30pm to 9pm.  Cost dependent on requirement but general attendance is £5. Contact: crashtestdramauk@hotmail.co.uk for more info or find them on Facebook.

That's everything for another weekend, just to remind you that you can find us at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST  (If you put us in your Google or Sat Nav, we shall magically appear)
