Enthralling from stage to screen....

There are a good variety of theatres and cinemas in and around Reading, including several community-based venues such as Progress Theatre and the Reading Film Theatre.

The Hexagon, Concert Hall and South Street are professional venues supported by Vue%20cinema%20upright.jpgReading Borough Council. The Hexagon is a multipurpose venue in Reading's centre which provides rock, pop, comedy, classical music and dance as well as theatre. The Concert Hall is situated in the beautiful Town Hall complex and features comedy, and music of all types amongst its programme. South Street presents performing arts from both professional and community sectors including fringe theatre, comedy, music, dance and live literature.

Reading is also home to the Progress Theatre, which is an amateur, self funding theatre group that operates and maintains its own 97 seat theatre.
