30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST


I began volunteering at the Rising Sun in the early 2000s, helping behind the bar at first, then joining the programming team, writing the weekly events mailouts, later learning how to do sound for gigs, and eventually managing the sound team. After a good run of nearly 20 years, I took the decision to step back from volunteering.

I still curate Tribute Night though, in collaboration with Damien, which means we get to choose which artists we do, but I also have to organise the people playing – with great power comes great admin.
