A small alternative venue, recently refurbished and offering alternative shows of very high quality. The space has changed from the last time I was there (around 1 year ago).

I have frequented several shows here over the last few months, and the venue never disappoints. Close enough to the town centre to be within distance of everything, yet it remains nicely tucked away behind several of the main streets of Reading, so that one...More
