“Everybody’s playing the game but nobody’s rules are the same. Nobody’s on nobody’s side”



The Sainsbury Singers

On stage

We've been performing shows since 1939 and offer a strong programme of two productions a year in The Hexagon Theatre, Reading and other venues

Note worthy

Our roots lie in music and it remains at the heart of our activities, whether producing musicals, performing in concerts or carol singing at Christmas

Get Involved

Above all though we are a friendly, inclusive group that enjoys singing, dancing, acting and socialising together. Newcomers are always welcome

How can I get involved?

On stage

We welcome performers of wide abilities

Back stage

Join our own in-house technical and stage crews

Behind the scenes

We could never do this without our front-of-house and other helpers
