The Hexagon in Reading is a small but comfortable theatre. The inside is nicer than the outside! The staff are friendly, drinks reasonably priced and the acoustics are good. I attended Beth Hart with my brother in law and she was fantastic! Worth every penny....More

Visited for the film festival and it was very good. The bar is good price and inside clean. In Reading town so east to get to by train. Had a good evening.

The theatre is great, but the production was slightly strange. I have never seen animation going on behind a ballet before and found it distracting and uncalled for. The main leads were brilliant but overall I do not think it was worth the money.

We often attend events here, yesterday evening we were at the Banff Film Festival. Facilities are good, bar is open pre-event and in interval. Seats are fine in any area.

Having seen everything from classical music to amateur theatre to Paloma Faith at the Hexagon, this is a brilliant all round venue. Hideous to look at from the outside, but the inside is pleasant, if not beginning to show signs of age. The auditorium is...More

Fantastic performance all around, everyone cheered and joined in when they started to sing ‘Always look on the bright side of life’. Impressive vocals, superb acting, lots of humour and Stacey Stockwell who was the sign language interpreter was equally entertaining to watch. Great fun...More
