01/10/2018 to 24/11/2018 TREASURES WITH TALES

Wallingford Museum's latest exhibition is creating great interest with its 'Treasures with Tales' exhibition. Residents from Wallingford and the surrounding villages have loaned the museum a wide variety of fascinating objects, each with its own special significance - from exotic to fun to poignant! Visitors are able to follow the 'Treasures Trail' and discover these things for themselves throughout the museum. Each has its own 'tale' displayed and can be enjoyed by the whole family. The treasures are woven in amongst other exhibitions which include not only the story of Wallingford's Saxon origins, its great Royal castle, the town's links with Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders, but also updates on the recent archaeology that is being uncovered by new developments around the town.

Wallingford Museum, Flint House, 52 High Street, Wallingford OX10 0DB

07/11/2018 to 11/11/2018 PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION - CREATIVITY

CREATIVITY is a touring photographic exhibition, created and supported by The Photographic Angle.Historically we were always trying to capture the fleeting image, one that reflected reality as we saw it. By contrast, in a world of iPhones and Instagram we now often see images that present an altered sense of reality. Although photography is a creative art form in itself, the concept of this theme showcases the results achieved when camera settings, editing techniques and creative angles are used to the photographers advantage. All art is subjective and we fully expect visitors to be challenged by the work on display. Some images may be considered beautiful, while others are thought-provoking; some may even challenge your perception on what constitutes a photographic image. Free Public Admission.
3 Forbury Place, 23 Forbury Road, Reading, RG1 3JH

08/11/2018 to 12/11/2018 PATTERNS PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

PATTERNS. They surround us. We come across them every day and yet we very rarely take that much notice of them. Exploring the hidden geometry that surrounds us, enables us to truly appreciate the way that pattern can help us to tell a story. Focusing on different forms, structures, textures and colours is a great starting point for exploring pattern and discovering the narrative that begins to unravel. The photographers who have work featured in this exhibition have taken nature, architecture, art, design and more as their inspiration. They have experimented with repetition, tessellation, symmetry, perspective, angles and magnification to create powerful images using visual patterns. PATTERNS is a touring photographic exhibition, created and supported by ThePhotographic Angle. Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change. 10am to 3pm - free entry.

16/11/2018 to 24/12/2018 APRÈS - READING'S MOST POPULAR CHRISTMAS BAR AT STATION HILL

For the fourth year the outdoor ski lodge bar will be back in Reading over the festive period. Gunter, head ski instructor/chief cocktail tester, and his team will be serving Mulled Wine, Frosty pints of Beer and their signature Winter Cocktails. Two years ago the bar moved to Station Hill, a move that WePop, the company behind the Après Bar, were extremely excited about. Their excitement was well-founded! A huge attraction to the Après Bar is their cosy mini chalets. Each one seats up to 10 people and is decorated with festive décor and blankets - and this year there’s a larger chalet as well, along with a marquee area with heaters. It’s a great spot to stop by for a swift drink during the festive period and it is also perfect for Christmas Parties. From reserving a small seated area or a chalet for a group, to hiring a section of the venue for your entire company.
