It’s showtime!

Alan Cornish Theatre

On Friday 22nd April 2016, a ceremony was held to rename the Oakwood Centre‚Äôs Theatre in memory of Alan Cornish, who played a key role in the development of performing arts locally. He had been one of the founding members of Starmaker, a local theatre company for young people. 

The Alan Cornish Theatre can be used for a variety of different events, functions and productions. The theatre has tiered seating for 100 people*, which makes it the perfect room for business presentations and lectures, as well as theatrical productions, music performances and film shows.


We also have a range of theatre productions produced by Woodley Theatre, Berzerk Productions and many more throughout the year. 

An ideal location

The Oakwood Centre is a well-appointed, fully accessible modern building centrally located close to Reading with easy motorway access and public transport links, with pay and display parking available opposite the Centre and free parking available at Woodford Park Leisure Centre, just a short stroll across Woodford Park.
