Look, Hear – Discover Oxford Road Part 1: The Pavilion
Submerge yourself in a multi-sensory tour of the Oxford Road; “Look, hear, Oxford Road” is brought to you by Baker Street Productions, who invite you to rediscover the Oxford Road with authentic stories from the past and interviews from current residents, all presented from 30 years in Reading’s future.
Part 1: The Pavilion
Amory Phillips tells us what the Oxford Road community means to Lifespring Church.
Performed by Paul Gallantry and Tiffany King.
Baker Street Productions has been working as part of the High Street Heritage Action Zone pilot project on Oxford Road ‘Re-imagining the high street through your stories’, in which they and two other local artists were commissioned to create exciting new art responses to the Oxford Road Stories research project, which is now available to view on the Reading Museum’s website as an online exhibition. Commissioned artists were asked to create proposals for art projects that would celebrate the history, heritage and vibrancy of culture of Reading’s Oxford Road, and were selected by a local community panel.
