Mega Roller Disco

As Director of an events company, I run lots of different fun events, including Mega Roller Disco. Our Cheltenham events are very popular and draw a very big crowd. Our most recent event was last Saturday 12th May, with over 550 skaters attending across three sessions.

Photos coming soon, taken by the wonderful Mark90 Photography. Just trying to work out how to format them on Blogger so they don't look like such a mess on the page!

Our next public event is on Saturday 1st September at leisure@cheltenham. We are however looking to expand to new places, and hope to launch in some new [currently top secret] locations this summer.

Space Between [Pop Up Art Gallery]

On Saturday night I ran my first pop up art gallery event; a project I've been working on with two others, including Stefan. The project is called Space Between, the aim being to make art available to all and to help under the radar artists seek the exposure they deserve. 

Around 45 artists exhibited 130 submissions in total, in a variety of media including painted canvases, photography, digital prints, installations, crafts, ceramics and more. We were also lucky enough to have viav and Sweet Monday selling fantastic vintage items at the event, which proved very popular. Overall the day was a great success, with a high footfall of people, great feedback and some good sales too. It was great to see the culmination of many weeks of preparation and hard graft come together.

We were also lucky enough to get some great support from Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum, including being loaned some professional display boards. Below is a photo taken at the event by Mark90 Photography
