Sat 19 June, every 15 mins from 11am to 4pm
The Townsfolk of Reading have much to thank the Franciscan brothers who have ministered to the sick of the town for nigh on 50 years.
Yet the brothers still live on the flooded marshes by Caversham Bridge, granted to them begrudgingly by Reading Abbey.
South Street is proud to present this very special six-minute performance for one person at a time, as part of the celebrations for 900 years of Reading’s historic Abbey.
Written & Performed by Benedict Sandiford
Designed by Nigel Bish
Produced by John Luther
Commissioned by the Reading Abbey Revealed project.
With thanks to Christelle Beaupoux, Matthew Williams, Lucy Daniels & Natalie Ganpatsingh.
You will require a ticket to the Abbey 900 @ Waterfest event which are free from here.
The performance lasts 6 minutes and will start every 15 mins. You will be able to sign up to a slot on the day.
All COVID protocols will be adhered to on the day, including a screen between performer and audience.
