The Jelly Sound House - 2012-2013

The Jelly Sound House, a space acquired by Jelly, was used as a sound space for music workshops, band rehearsals and studio recording.

The space provided Reading All Steel Percussion Orchestra with ample room for storing the instruments and rehearsals with no noise constraints. The building was previously used as an underground nightclub most recently Club Mannakoo. In the past the club was also known as Bamboo, Rebecca's and Gatsbys.

From the Jelly Sound House CultureMix delivered a summer programme of Olympic themed workshops, activities and preparation for performances at the Royal Albert Hall and for the London 2012 Festival.

The building was demolished to make way for the updated Reading mainline railway station opened by The Queen of England in 2014.
