Reading University Singer Songwriters is an exciting society for anyone who plays an instrument, sings, writes, wants to do any of these or just enjoys a bit of live music!

We've got lots of great events planned for the year ahead as well as opportunities to perform on Junction11 at open mic nights across Reading!

Our Aims and Objectives:

 - Encourage newcomers to perform their music live

 - Bring together students who are interested in collaborating musically

 - Sharing musical experiences and tastes with eachother

Here’s a bit about the events which RUSS is running and what we have to offer you... 


Big Jam Sessions

Meet up with other musicians to collaborate and make some music in a relaxed and friendly environment!

Open Mic Nights

A great opportunity for those who haven't performed on stage before, to help build confidence and get you out there performing.

Gigging Opportunities

Our links with local promoters and music venues provide more ways that can get you playing out there.

Song Feedback Sessions

Perform songs you're working on in front of other musicians, who will provide feedback and constructive criticism.

End of Year Charity Event

A collabration of musical societies to raise some money for charity.

NOTE: This event is currently a working progress but we will give updates as the year goes by.


We’re creating as many opportunities for our members to get out there and perform, as we feel everyone deserves a chance to do what they’re passionate about. RUSS was set up by three students who are hugely passionate about music and song-writing and have had lots of experience playing in Reading. We've had a fantastic few years with RUSS and are aiming for bigger and better things - so get involved!
