Festive Season

In the lead up to the festive season RASPO will be entertaining shoppers with a sparkly explosion of calypso and carols to raise funds for renting rehearsal space and maintaining instruments.

You can support RASPO by spreading the word, supporting the performances and donating spare change so young people can continue to learn music at free workshops.

Spending cuts may see South Street close

Save South Street

South Street Arts Centre is one of several buildings at risk of closure as a result of budget cuts to be made by Reading Borough Council.

South Street is home to RASPO Steel Orchestra and is one of Reading's most valuable and significant venues attracting the UK's best theatre, comedy, music and performance art to Reading.
