Eight local artists and makers are joining together in an exciting new venture. The first ever exhibition of Red Kite Artists and Makers takes off at the Old Fire Station, Henley-on-Thames , the exhibition is free and will show an eclectic mix of paintings, ceramics and upcycled decorative objects. Red Kite aims to showcase a slice of the vibrant creative scene which thrives in and around Henley. It is a new collective of creative people from Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Using diverse media – oils, acrylics, watercolour and fabric – the painters are captivated by light, landscapes and animal life. The ceramics are inspired by the sea and wildlife, while worn and ordinary items are transformed into unique objects through découpage and decorative techniques.

17/04/2018 MAIDENHEAD UTD v SUTTON UNITED - VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE

Maidenhead are now absolutely certain of their place again in the top division of non-league football next season after an excellent first-ever season at the top. After two home wins in the past week they have now eased past the critical 50-points mark and can use their remaining games this season as something of a pre-season for the next campaign. That doesn't mean they will take their foot off the pedal, however. Their midweek game brings a return visit from promotion-chasing Sutton United, who were 3-2 up when the original game was abandoned three weeks ago. Could be just as close and exciting again.

19/04/2018 WATERMILL THEATRE RURAL TOURING - BURKE AND HARE

1828, Edinburgh. Two Williams, William Burke and William Hare, discover a money making scheme far more lucrative than hosting lodgers. The first rule of business? Supply and demand. In the leading city for medical research, there’s a huge demand for bodies and an inconveniently low number of deaths. The profitable solution? Murder, of course. As the infamous pair flourish in their new found careers, the more they murder, the less they care but for how long will they get away with it? In a new black comedy that is as hysterical as it is historical, three actors tell the true story of the prolific duo.

22/04/2018 THE SUNDAY ASSEMBLY - THIS MONTH'S TOPIC, ELECTRIC CARS

Electric cars: Greener, smarter, safer? With major concerns about air quality, as well as climate change - have we started a shift away from diesel and petrol towards electric vehicles? Are they more environmentally friendly? Can our electricity system cope? Find out the latest developments, and perhaps consider whether you are ready to go electric! This month we are joined by Anthony Simpson, who is currently working for the University of Reading on a two year project with a Marlow based electric car leasing and smart services company, with the objective of creating business models for smart charging of electric cars. Then add some great songs, sung with The Word Of Bob, and all the other fun things that make a Sunday Assembly. Sunday Assembly Reading is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life, meeting once a month at The Reading Irish Centre. Members of Sunday Assembly believe in Living Better, Helping Often and Wondering More, for no other reason than to make the most of the one life we know we have.
