the reading room :: e-newsletter #75


Tonight, not at the reading room, get to 4x4-4 at the Academy - where you will see work by one of our very own volunteers - Angelica Harris-Faull. Another of our super talented volunteers, Bonnie McCrossan, opened her exhibtiion last Thursday and it's a good-un. Still up until the end of May so come on down.

Don't forget we have board games to play, and space to book events. If you're interested in putting on an event with us, just send us an email. We'll soon be launching a Sunday market. Interested stallholders please get in touch.

:: Thursday 10th May - Wednesday 30th May :: Pop Vomit - A Retrospective by Bonnie McCrossan"Hello my lovely ladies and gents! I would like to invite you all to an exhibition opening that will be an absolute shame to miss out on. My entire artistic history will be on show and most pieces are even available to buy! Come, dance, talk, be cultured and drink the wino on offer! Pop Culture is my main inspiration. Pop Culture is at times both the very best and the very worst, its lowbrow acconatations link it towards glossy magazines and tacky tabloid blogs. But at the heart of this incredible topic is the juxtaposition of beauty, trash and glamor. Normal people trying (and at times succeeding) to be more than what they truly are, reaching and pushing to whatever lengths they can to get to the top."

Do it often, and you wont be able to stop laughing.

If you feel like dancing but can't wait for the weekend, try Dancing Room! Tuesday nights, with the location announced Guerilla style on their facebook page. Please note it is not an event that is facilitated by the Reading Room, but a separate commitee. The best way to find out where it is held each week is via their facebook page.

Tues 22nd May :: Dancing Theatre one-off event at Queens TheatreFor a special collaborative Dancing Room event, we are migrating for one night to the beautiful historic Queen's Theatre on Playhouse Lane. We will dance on our regular Tuesday night, starting at our regular time, but have decided to dance before Tuesday night's performance of the new Brink Productions' Land and Sea.
Will you come and make a special occasion even more special? It's an opportunity to dance in a pretty special place, before a pretty special performance. Stick around and see the show, or just dance and perform your own show.
