The Hexagon is a well established multi-purpose venue in the heart of Reading. Built in 1977, it was ahead of its time both in design and structure. Described as 'space-age' in the press, its 'assisted resonance' sound system was the first of its kind in the country. Since the very first performance of The Gondoliers on November 7th 1977, The Hexagon has offered a varied programme of a consistently high standard, featuring regularly on the touring calendar of hundreds of national and international groups and orchestras. Over the years, it has welcomed to its stage such artists as English National Ballet, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, B. B. King, The Russian Ice Stars, The Smiths and Katherine Jenkins.
