Reading, Purple Turtle

The Purple Turtle sprung into life back before the world had heard of Gazza, Thatcher was still in power and frankly before most things that now exist in Reading. Over the years it has featured performances from John Otway, Fabio & Grooverider, Maribou State, Sundara Karma, The Amazons, Geno Washington, Mungo Jerry and many more. Renowned around the South of England as the number 1 nightspot and music venue that has launched the careers of some of the finest acts we now cherish.
