14/10/2017 A MELODY FOR MURDER

Following the sell-out success of A Gamble With Death, the team are back this Autumn with A Melody For Murder. Get ready for a brand new murder mystery treasure hunt that sends teams of intrepid detectives into a web of blackmail, lies and deceit as they try to discover #WhoKilledStellaChord. Using their smartphones, players must race around the streets of Reading to find hidden evidence, crack cryptic clues and converse with suspicious characters to catch the culprit – before the time runs out. The game centres around the murder of multi-millionaire singer and long-time diva, Stella Chord, who was rehearsing The Bel Canto Melody for her 100th concert at The Hexagon in Reading. But a lighting rig came crashing down - and she never reached the final bars. Police suspect the dramatic finish to the piece wasn't quite what she had in mind.

Norwich finished second to Portsmouth in their group, finishing above Wolves and Everton.  Since then, they overcame Fulham by way of spot-kicks after a captivating fixture had ended 5-5 after extra time, before triumphing 1-0 on Merseyside to eliminate Liverpool. And while Norwich currently prop up the Premier League 2 Division 2, they are performing heroics in the knock-out competition – so our boys will need your backing if they are to clear the penultimate hurdle!

 THEATRE ROYAL, WINDSOR

Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine’s Day. Ruth Rendell’s brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit, and coverups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly asmurder itself. Building on the phenomenal decade-long success of The Agatha Christie Theatre Company, which sold over two million tickets and continually played to packed houses around the UK, Bill Kenwright presents a new production adapted from one of the most celebrated works of the writer often hailed as the successor to Agatha Christie. Credited with revitalising the mystery genre, Ruth Rendell was first published in 1964 her prolific output included film and TV as well as 80 novels.

He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn't matter as either he's funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It's a win-win situation.

11/11/2017 READING BACH CHOIR MUSIC FOR THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

The first concert with new Musical Director David Young, an exciting Russian flavour and another first. The Reading Bach Choir is delighted to be performing the complete set of Shostakovich’s Ten Poems on Texts by Revolutionary Poets. This is possibly the first time the complete set has been performed in Britain and music has been specially printed. Rarely performed, it was written in the early 1950s, before the death of Stalin. Shostakovich cherry-picked a series of early 20th century propaganda texts, setting them to music rich with folk tunes, populist verve and a dramatists’ eye for setting text. This concert is on Remembrance Day and marks 100 years since the end of the 1917 Russian Revolution. Starts 7.30pm.
