Reading Rep’s Free Open Day!

12 months ago

Join us for our first Open Day on 22 July from 10am – 1pm. This event is free to attend. 

We invite our local community to come and meet the Reading Rep Theatre team, find out what it takes to produce our own shows and explore the theatre.

The Open Day will include craft workshops facilitated by Reading arts charity Jelly, bookshelves by Reading Children’s Book Group, giant outdoor games, tasty treats, face painting, coffees from the theatre’s Backstage Bar and more. 

Chris Cuming, Director of Engage at Reading Rep, said of the event, “This event is about opening our doors and inviting our local community into the theatre. We want everyone to feel welcome at Reading Rep so this is a great opportunity to come and meet the team behind the theatre, be nosy and explore the venue and take part in some great free activities with our partners Jelly and Reading Children’s Book Club. Join us in a celebration of Reading’s Communities and our town”

The Open Day is part of the theatre’s ongoing commitment to making their venue and its activities and programming accessible to those who may not otherwise have access to the arts. 

Reading Rep Theatre will be hosting their first Open Day event to celebrate the completion of their 10th anniversary season, Reading Rep: 10.

Reading Rep: 10 has been a celebration of the voices and talent that have been part of Reading Rep’s decade long tapestry of work. The season, which comprised of five bold and exciting pieces of programming, has seen Reading Rep honour its roots in collaborations with ongoing creative partners, whilst also championing a new frontier of creatives.
