 THE MILL AT SONNING

Summer is that time when the inimitable Brian Blessed visits Sonning to direct one of Agatha Christie's classic thrillers. The combination of Christie & Blessed has proved a winning formula for The Mill, helped by the special relationship that Brian had with the Queen of Crime. He met and worked with her when he was a young actor at Nottingham Repertory Theatre. Their friendly conversations informed Brian about how she would have liked to see her plays directed. She told Brian that Towards Zero was acclaimed by the novelist Robert Graves as by far her best and most dramatic novel, and in 1956, Gerald Verner adapted it into a play.

12/09/2019 JAMES ACASTER - COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999
 THE HEXAGON THEATRE, READING

One time I bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it and it wasn't very nice so I put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to dump a whole lasagne in the bin and then later on I ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne because I was drunk and it was absolutely delicious. It was 4am. I then changed the name of a WhatsApp I was a part of to COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 because I had been thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of my life and also about how much I hate myself sometimes. The next day I was asked to name my new show. Come along.

 ARLINGTON ARTS, NEWBURY

Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era. With Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs, the band had a string of huge hits throughout the 1970s including Love to Boogie, Telegram Sam, Jeepster and 20th Century Boy. T.Rextasy have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex. The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management. The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

A guided tour of the Church, outlining its history over the last 700 years and its current usage is offered. Alternatively a free leaflet is available for self-guiding.

14/09/2019 to 22/09/2019 HERITAGE OPEN DAYS - ST GILES CHURCH

The original St. Giles was built in the twelfth century, to serve a large Parish with a small population in well-wooded country through which the River Kennet flowed. It stood on the main road south, on the Outskirts of the town, hence perhaps the dedication. In 1191 Pope Clement III gave the church to Reading Abbey: and throughout the middle ages it enjoyed the right of sanctuary. The building grew gradually. During the Civil Wars of the seventeenth century, when the parliamentarians besieged Reading, St. Giles tower was garrisoned for the King and the upper part was destroyed in 1643. The fabric was restored at the end of hostilities, and again under a series of popular incumbents in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the Catholic Revival began to influence the life and work of what was by now a very populous parish.

15/09/2019 ROYALS v MANCHESTER CITY - FA WOMEN'S SUPER LEAGUE

After starting the campaign in winning fashion against Liverpool last weekend, Reading FC Women will be trying to make it two from two when they host Manchester City at Adams Park. Man City also got off to a winning start – and also by a 1-0 scoreline. The very first Manchester derby in the WSL was settled by Caroline Weir’s goal just after the break. The Royals will host a City team who are just back from their trip into Europe, where they got a confidence-boosting result in the Champions League. They were tied up at 1-1 at half-time against Swiss side Lugano, but ultimately ran out 7-1 winners in their away leg thanks to a flurry of late goals. There could potentially be a debut in the blue and white hoops for striker Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland, who penned a deal with the Royals Women earlier this week – becoming the third Norwegian to link up with Kelly Chambers’ side this summer. Teams across the WSL have been posting record home crowds this season, thanks to a buzz around the game. So we welcome our fans to Adams Park this Sunday to get behind Reading. NOTE KICK-OFF 12.30pm.

18/09/2019 to 28/09/2019 GASLIGHT
 THEATRE ROYAL, WINDSOR

A lost watch, a missing brooch, a displaced picture frame… Tricks of the mind perhaps, but for Bella Manningham everything seems horribly real. As the fog-bound evening draws in and the gaslight dims again, Bella realizes she is alone with no one to protect her from the footsteps creaking in the attic. Only the unexpected arrival of former police detective Rough can help untangle fact from fiction and save a woman on the brink of insanity. Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight was first staged in 1938, and in 1944 was adapted as a film starring legendary Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotten and Charles Boyer.

21/09/2019 ROYALS v BLACKBURN ROVERS - SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP

It's three weeks since the Royals were last at the Mad Stad. That was a day they were supposed to underline their early-season promise with what seemed a likely victory against Charlton. It didn't work out that way, and boss José Gomes admitted that even though they lost to a deflected goal and a penalty, they were far below the standard he expects. Now, after two home defeats this season, he will be hoping the team does not get into the same jittery home habits which infected the Mad Stad in the past two seasons. This will be an interesting test, against a Blackburn side which, like many in the division, is capable of beating the best.

 KENTON THEATRE, HENLEY-ON-THAMES

Opera Holloway are delighted to be performing Puccini’s La Boheme, a thrilling and passionate love story, as depicted by one of Opera’s true legends. La Boheme depicts the ever-changing fortunes of the lives of four flatmates, reluctant to leave their student days behind them. Conducted by Lewis Gaston and directed by Fiona Williams, we follow the unfolding love story of Mimi and Rudolfo from it’s joyous beginnings to the bitter end. Opera Holloway’s production moves the action to a seaside town, on the south coast in England. Four young men are living the youthful dream, yearning for love and not working too hard. Their flat is run down, they’re content to live on take-aways, they complain when they run out of money and have perfected the art of dodging the landlord. Their lives are filled with trips to the pub, late night dancing and girls.
