The Hexagon is a multi-purpose entertainment venue in the heart of Reading, hosting an eclectic mix of entertainers from big name Comedians, Spectacular Musicals, Children's Shows, Classical Concerts, Opera, Pantomime, Theatre, Dance and everything in between.
Built in 1977 by Robert Matthew Johnson Marshall (RMJM) in the Brutalist style of modernist architecture, the venue's capacity varies from 1,200 to 1,686 depending on the programme.
Please note that there will be very limited bar/cafe service available at the Hexagon for the foreseeable future. We recommend that refreshments are pre-ordered before the show. A full range of refreshments are available to pre-order and will be available at pick up points at the theatre. Drinks and refreshments can be added to your order at the checkout when booking tickets. We will inform bookers of this service before the show date.
Please note that alcohol sales are for over 18's only, you may be asked for ID and Reading Arts reserves the right to refuse service.
If you have already purchased your tickets you can add a pre-order up to 2 hours before the start of the performance by clicking the link on the event page. (This option will be available a few days before the event).
Please ensure that tickets and pre-orders are purchased with the same Reading Arts account.
You may cancel or amend an existing refreshment order up to 4 hours before the start of the performance.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to make any changes.
