With financial support from the Arts Council England and Reading Borough Council we are about to enter an exciting new phase for South Street in 2016. The iconic and much loved arts centre will be closing in June to carry out a full refurbishment. This work will ensure South Street will provide enhanced facilities for visitors and the artistic partners who use it. The venue will re-open in November 2016 with a reconfigured main hall, new seating, new toilets and a purpose built bar.
Becoming a friend or a member will give you the opportunity to be part of this exciting future by supporting the venue and finding out first what is happening behind the scenes.
Your support as a member will also enable you to access benefits such as priority notification on shows and regular newsletters with the latest news from the venue. Members will also be invited to our Season Launch events and other special events throughout the year, such as select rehearsals or read-throughs. You will also receive discounts and offers on shows and opportunity to bring a friend to the venue for free twice a year.
This support will ensure we are able to invest in the building in the future and continue to provide a programme that is diverse and unique in Reading.
