  25 May

Hungerford Jazz Forum

until 11pm

For more than 15 years we have been encouraging musicians of all ages and abilities to get up and play in a friendly atmosphere. We are in a great room with a stage, drums, lights, microphones, everything including a fantastic bar and we ask only £2 as a contribution to costs.

Come along and bring your instrument and have a blow. Feeling uncertain? Then leave it in the car but you’ll want to get it out later!! Singers are also welcome. We will pick a few open numbers for everyone to try and also arrange mini sets for others. Don't forget that there is a great bar with good beer!



Continuing this week

Open Studios 30 years

  12 May - 3 Jun


Open Studios 2018 exhibition


At Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire we are celebrating our 30th year and would like to invite you to take a look at some very useful paintings, pictures, sculptures and ceramics.

How can a painting, picture or sculpture be useful you might ask. How could music be useful?

They are all extremely useful - you can almost call them a form of medicine - because they are balm for your soul, they lift your spirit, they are exciting, they provoke your thoughts and they can fill your heart with joy.

To get hold of this vital medicine, please, come to our main ‘pharmacy’ which is located in the INSIGHT exhibition, this year at Arlington Arts, where you can find work from each of the 123 artists registered this year. Here, exquisite porcelain, fine landscapes and still life paintings rub shoulders with aluminium prints, funky collages, knitwear, confectionery, jewellery, absorbing abstracts and electrifying sculptures – beautiful and sometimes provocative reflections on the world we live in.
