Royal Patron: Our Royal Patron, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh

Reading Rep received royal patronage in October 2022, from Prince Edward, The Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness said ‘Reading Rep is rapidly becoming an essential part of the arts scene in Reading for three really good reasons. It is creating pathways to the performing arts for young people, regardless of background; it is introducing new audiences to the performing arts through its outreach and access activities; and it is a space providing an alternative venue for creative and production talents to hone their skills. I look forward to helping with reinforcing this theatre’s inspiring work in the local community and to supporting its future endeavours.’
