About -- Thames Valley


2014-2015 RTS Thames Valley Programme of Events (DOWNLOAD)

The Society has Regional Centres, each running its own programme of lectures, workshops, masterclasses and awards throughout the year.

The Thames Valley Centre was formed in 1991 in response to a considerable demand for a local centre from RTS members living in and around the Reading and Newbury areas.

The Centre enjoys a current membership of over 300 drawn mostly from the manufacturing companies in the area.

As the Thames Valley Centre lies in the centre of the largest concentration of television technology manufacturing companies in the country, its membership has a strong technological bias and covers topics that impact the commercial aspects of television as well as reviews of major industry exhibitions, which are also covered.

Centre meetings are usually held at the Pincents Manor Hotel, Pincents Lane, Calcot, Reading, Berkshire RG31 4UQ. Thames Valley Meetings are nearly always free to attend.

As well as an annual series of lectures on subjects of technical, creative and general interest the Centre has a strong events calendar which includes an Annual Dinner Dance and local visits. Members and non-members are welcome at all events.
