RSX 2019 is in the planning stages but here’s what we’ve got so far. Please check back here for more announcements soon!
A hidden gem, St Luke’s Hall will be the location of our first event of RSX 2019. With plenty of character, space and a fabulous wooden floor, St Luke’s Hall is going to be a great place to warm up and settle in to the event.
This venue is located just a 20min walk from the town centre with easy bus access from the train station.

St. Laurence Church
St. Laurence Church has been such a hit for the last three years that we’re back here again for our 2019 RSX Ball! Dress to impress and join us for the highlight of the weekend as we enjoy an evening of live music and dancing!
St Laurence is located in the heart of Reading Town Center and just a short stroll from the Reading Train Station. This beautiful 900 year old building has been wonderfully modernised inside to include a fast wood laminate floor that will be a real treat to dance on.
There’s no bar or BYO at this venue but we will be keeping you hydrated with cold beverages as well as cakes and snacks throughout the evening to fuel your happy feets!

Saturday Late Night
Watlington House Community Hall
After the Ball we’ll be taking a leisurely 10min walk over to Watlington House Community Hall, to continue the party into the wee hours of the morning. Expect a chilled out and cozy blues vibe to keep you dancing throughout the night.
The Community Hall is another thriving community hub that supports many local groups including Reading’s own swing scene with Reading Swing Jam and All Jazzed Up making the most of this venue’s smooth floor, and we’re glad to be supporting this local gem again this year!

The Global Cafe is a treasured local community hub with a warm and welcoming atmosphere and a great selection of Fairtrade drinks and snacks.
