Eric Rimmington: New PaintingsBohun Gallery presents:
Eric Rimmington: New Paintings
Corn Exchange, Newbury

Eric Rimmington returns to the Bohun Gallery this November with a glorious collection of new paintings. Described by the critic William Packer as 'one of the country's most distinguished exponents in the field of still life', Rimmington richly deserves his place amongst Britain's most celebrated contemporary still life artists. His virtuosic paintings are characterised by his eclectic choice of objects, placed apparently at random against a bare studio wall. The effect is both beautiful and intriguing.

The 7th WriteFest
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

Come and see another fantastic selection of new writing by local writers, produced for the first time. Delights await in this; Progress Theatre's 7th Annual WriteFest.

This year's programme includes; comedies both clever and absurd, pathos, hubris, relationships both passionate and tired, revenge, loss, secrets, arrogance, confusion, scandal, food fights, stones, knives and even a toilet!

WriteFest has become a firm fixture in the Progress Theatre's season and each year showcases upcoming writing and theatrical talent in Reading's local area. Ever popular, WriteFest often sells out and this year's eclectic mix of eight short plays is sure to please, so book now to avoid disappointment.

Sean Hughes: Life Becomes NoisesArlington Arts presents:
Sean Hughes
Life Becomes Noises
Arlington Arts Centre, Mary Hare, Newbury

It has been over a year since his father died, and Sean is dealing with his death in a way that only Sean can.

Here is a comedy performance from Sean like you’ve never seen before, resulting in the feelgood show of the year. This hilarious yet poignant tale is a beautiful insight into the lighter side of dying and getting older, going to places that comedy rarely goes, highlighting how ridiculous life is and how quickly it can be taken away.

"Hugely impressive and intelligent" Time Out

"One of the best stand-ups of his generation" Telegraph
