Join us for an evening of talks by creatives based within the East Midlands who work on a national and international scale. Our guests will talk us through their recent projects and how they’ve found the opportunities to thrive in the area. To tie in with our current project, 'The Winter Shop' Show + Tell 3 will bring you the stories of the makers that have taken over our gallery space. Find out what it's like to work as a designer-maker - dreaming up a product, setting up shop and finding your audience - as well as discovering the creatives on your doorstep.
Our bar will be open all evening - as well as 'The Winter Shop' - pick up affordable and contemporary cards, books, prints, jewellery, plants, ceramics and items for the home, with the money you spend going back to supporting independent creatives in the region. Tickets are extremely limited. Please note entry is through our back entrance on George's Yard.
