The Billericay Reading Rooms – Andy Maddocks

The Billericay Reading Rooms are historic premises dating back to the mid 19th century, located in Billericay High Street
If it had not been for the forethought of local residents in the mid-1800s who were concerned about the “need to educate the working classes and to aid their growth and improvement” this building would never have been built.
The Reading Rooms continue to this day so I was pleased to welcome Vice Chairman of The Reading Rooms Andy Maddocks to tell all about this historic community resource.

About Bob Simpson

The O'Jays were right about me - I Love Music, Any Kinda Music! Brought up on The Beatles, wandered through the seventies dancing to anything from reggae to Led Zeppelin and took up the microphone and decks all around East London and Essex when I wasn't doing my boring day job. Entered the world of radio in July 2011 and feel home at last. Thanks for visiting. Send me a message or request via Facebook on the link below - you are most welcome.
