A recording studio has existed at 35 Milford Road for over 15 Years, the original studio was built by Roy Apps (famed for his part as ‘Rory’ in 70s children’s TV show Animal Crackers) and was owned by Human League and Buzzcocks producer Martin Rushent. Martin also ran a PA hire company based at the premises. The studio was taken over by Readipop founders Gavin Lombos and Russ Alsop and Plug n Play was launched in September 2001, initially operating as a recording studio, arts and rehearsal space as well as the new home for arts organisation Readipop.
Plug n Play expanded to take over extra space in unit 33 in 2003 becoming one of Reading’s premier live music and club venue’s, hosting diverse performances from artists such as Pete & The Pirates, Annie Nightingale, Dreadzone, Luke Vibert, Late of The Pier, The Dub Pistols, Zion Train, Mystery Jets and many more.
Plug n Play today is still the home of Readipop, now a registered charity providing a range of opportunities for young people to take part in music and the arts.
