30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST


I began volunteering at the Rising Sun in the early 2000s, 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 we do, but I also have to organise the people playing – with great power comes a fair bit of admin.

I have recently re-joined the programming team and am part of the group that organises the annual Here Comes The Sun festival.  I also update the blackboard on the front of the building each week.

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