Images have been published showing the latest leisure venue in Reading.

Reading Biscuit Factory at the Broad Street Mall opened last week. The 14,000 sq ft multi-use venue is home to a three-screen independent cinema, event space, bar, food kiosks, coffee shop, live performance space and community hub.

The Really Local Group development, delayed by lockdown, is at the former Argos store.

Preston Benson, founder of Really Local Group, said: “After nearly four years and three lockdowns, we are proud to launch the Reading Biscuit Factory at Broad Street Mall. We can’t wait to show the residents of Reading and the surrounding communities our beautiful venue, as well as share more details around our exciting cultural programme. There will be something for everyone at Reading Biscuit Factory!”

The space was designed by Wren Architecture.
