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 Thames Valley Centre runs a programme of lectures, workshops, masterclasses and awards throughout the year.
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.
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 Winter Ball and local visits. Members and non-members are welcome at all events.
