In 2018 Reading organisations CultureMix, Readipop and the Museum of English Rural Life Partnership joined the Arts Council England National Portfolio each receiving four years of investment to deliver high quality art.

The investment is a big boost as Reading moves towards becoming a major cultural destination.
