We are delighted that Waldemar Januszczak, art crtitic of the Sunday Times, has agreed to be the judge for our art competition.
Waldemar is a supporter of the campaign to Save Reading Gaol and says:
‘I saw a lot of Reading Gaol when I was a kid. From the outside, of course, not the inside! My sister used to work in the Huntley and Palmer’s factory opposite, and we went to church at St James’s next door. It’s such an iconic building, loaded with so much fascinating history. I’d hate to see it turned into yet another block of flats. Reading needs an arts centre. Here’s a chance to have one.’
