Part of our Heritage Open Days programme. Curated by Jenny Halstead and Linda Saul. An exciting exhibition celebrating the ever-changing skyline of Reading and bidding a fond and final farewell to the last of our so familiar gasometers.

About 25 invited artists will respond in their own styles and media to this themed show, appropriately exhibited in the Turbine House with its view down the Kennet to that last gasometer!

England’s favourite heritage festival stretches across two weekends in September. The theme this year is Edible England! It's your chance to see hidden places and celebrate our fantastic history and culture. The local programme is co-ordinated by Reading UK CIC. www.heritageopendays.org.uk

You can also discover the story of Reading's gasometers in our goodbye gasholder blog post.
