 THE WATERMILL - WEST BERKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE, NEWBURY

Oozing with sophistication and wit, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s A Little Night Music (based on Ingmar Bergman's Smiles on a Summer Night) is a passionate story of intertwined love affairs, regret and longing centred on elegant actress Desirée Armfeldt, and her family and flirtations. When Desirée performs in the town of her former lover, old passions rekindle and during a weekend in the country, the entangled romances of four couples are laid bare.

Imagine also that during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. Imagine further that the only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girlfriend but that his real girlfriend is to be kept ignorant of the fact! By the time the bride’s parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act the chaos reaches nuclear proportions. This hilarious play moves at the speed of light with a riot a minute that will leave you aching with laughter.

The Magpies are flying high in their first season in the top tier of non-league football, and they will be looking for three more points against Guiseley. The teams have never met before, and both are what would be classed as unfashionable in a league where almost half the teams have played in the Football League at one time or another. Guiseley have not made a good start to the campaign, and very early on sacked manager adam Lockwood, the former Reading defender. They will be no pushovers, however, and Maidenhead will have to be at their best.

05/10/2017 READING FC FORMER PLAYERS' ASSOCIATION EVENING WITH SENIOR AND CURETON

Trevor Senior and Jamie Cureton are sure to strike the right chord with Reading fans as they discuss their time at Reading, before taking questions from fans. Both players need little introduction with their vast haul of goals that proved so vital in Reading promotions. Trevor Senior is the highest goalscorer in Reading Football Club's history, amassing a huge 191 goals in 362 appearances during two spells with the Royals. After signing from Portsmouth, Trevor was the leading goalscorer across all four Divisions of the English league in the 1983/84 season, hitting 41 goals in all competitions. Very few players have a career record as extensive as Jamie Cureton. Jamie has continued to score goals into his 40s and has over 300 career goals to his name. Cureton will have plenty of goals to recall, but out of all those goals the firm fans favourite is likely to be the flick past the goalkeeper in front of a packed away end at Brentford in 2002. That goal was decisive in sealing automatic promotion to send Reading back up to Division One. Jamie spent three memorable seasons with the Royals, scoring 55 times.
