The Pretty ThingsArlington Arts presents:
The Pretty Things
Arlington Arts Centre, Mary Hare, Newbury

After more than 45 years of continuous service, The Pretty Things remain a significant, force in British music.

Despite their veteran status, their contemporary relevance, undiminished energy and inspirational commitment inspire emerging generations of new artists and young fans, whilst retaining their devoted, fanatical, core fan base.

Always innovative, the band were at the vanguard of British Rhythm and Blues and later, Psychedelia.

They have inspired the work of some of the best known musicians in recent history; with Iggy Pop, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, Nirvana and The Libertines all citing them as influences.

If ever there was a rock and roll show at Arlington Arts that could be deemed unmissable - this is it.

"Always made The Stones look tame, and the time has definitely come for their renaissance" David Gilmour

8-11 pm
Hungerford Jazz ForumHungerford Jazz Forum presents:
Hungerford Jazz Forum
Royal British Legion, Church Way, Hungerford

The Hungerford Jazz Forum was set up by Andy Richardson and George Wicks in 2002.

The idea behind HJF was, and still is, to give performers of all ages the opportunity to perform for a live audience in a friendly environment.

Beginning and intermediate players are welcome as we recognise that doing it for real is the best experience there is. Woodshedding is essential but it's a waste of time if you don't get up and blow!

HJF is pleased to recognise the support from a wide range of musicians and we are proud that we also have support from young musicians who are still at school.

NeverwhereProgress Theatre presents:
Neverwhere
Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

From the writer of Coraline, Stardust and an episode of Dr. Who; Neverwhere was originally created as a BBC2 television series in 1996, produced by Lenny Henry.

Robert Kauzlaric’s award-winning theatrical adaptation was first performed by the Chicago Lifeline Theatre in 2010:

“The Chicago Lifeline theatre production of Neverwhere is, I can say, now having seen it, absolutely WONDERFUL.” – Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself)

“There’s no question that Robert Kauzlaric’s adaptation is a full realization of Gaiman’s world” – Chicago Tribune

Set largely in the damp sewers and tube stations of London, the story centres on the hapless Richard Mayhew as he finds himself on a quest throughout the London underworld. On his journey he meets Rat-Speakers, an old Earl in his Court, professional assassins, black-robed monks and the Angel, Islington.

Tickets: on 0118 960 6060, online at www.readingarts.co.uk and in person at the Hexagon or Town Hall
