Formed in 2017, the Whiteknights Ensemble is a chamber group comprising musicians from local orchestras, including the Reading Symphony and the Aldworth Philharmonic.

The ensemble is based in Earley, Reading, and takes its name from Whiteknights Park, the manorial land of the De Erleigh family, now the campus of the University of Reading.
