30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST


I began volunteering at the Rising Sun in 2000, helping behind the bar at first, then joining the programming team, writing the weekly events mailout, and later learning how to be a sound engineer.

I took over the organisation of Tribute Night in 2010, kicking off with a Madness night that May.  I get to choose which artists’ songs we play, but I also have to organise the people playing them – with great power comes great administrative burden.

I am also part of the group of volunteers who organise the Here Comes The Sun festival.

You will often find me behind the sound desk at gigs.
