Welcome to Reading 2016

The Year of Culture will be the most important cultural and creative activity undertaken in Reading in a generation. The aims of the initiative include uniting the existing arts and culture organisations in Reading, and increasing the cultural ambition of Reading to make the town a destination for arts and culture in the UK.

Across the year a range of new artists and experiences will be brought to the town alongside showcasing our already existing wonderful cultural offer. We've designed Year of Culture to have a unique theme every month.

Each month will have a flagship project or series supported and enhanced by a range of other supporting events.
