Besides our work with young people, Readipop has, and continues to run different arts and music projects including community bands,  publications, arts projects for the town and a artist development programme.

Reading CAN – Culture and Arts Networking programme in partnership with Jelly and Reading Cultural Education Partnership, funded by ArtsWork.

Our gig guide was set up in response to the lack of a ‘one stop shop’ for finding events in Reading. With the advent of new listing sites and magazines appearing in the town, the Gig guide is currently in the process of being worked into a magazine promoting Reading’s Arts and Music culture.

If you are interested in writing articles for the new magazine, photography, illustration or even proofreading and editing roles, please sign up below:
