Our New Home

Dear Friends,

It is with great excitement that I can announce the relocation of Read Dance and Theatre College to our very own site for the first time in our history.

Our new site is very exciting for us in many ways…  It is a former campus of Reading University, having previously been their Film, Television and Theatre block know as the Myra McCulloch Building.  It is located at Bulmershe Court, about 10 minutes from Junction 10 of the M4 and on a major road/public transport link from the town centre.  The building comprises a fully-equipped drama studio, and vocal teaching room, a large storage area which will become our wardrobe department, various reception areas and offices etc, and – at its heart – a former 150 seat, 1900 SqF, studio theatre complete with sprung floors, huge windows, and a very theatrical atmosphere!  There is also an old dressing room block which will become private tuition/practice rooms for the students.

Our move will be taking place during the Easter break and we will be opening at the new site during April.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Michelle at The Performing Arts Institute, which has been our home for the last 2 years, for everything that she has done for us - it has been a fantastic place to work!

I look forward to posting photos of the new building as we have them.
