Not too long now until VS private view (25 Aug) and New Art Spaces launch.
I nipped out this morning for a sneaky peek. New Art Spaces/VS launches (27 Aug) during Bolton Food & Drink Festival weekend (26-29 Aug). There will be road closures/access changes in the town centre during this period - but also street food and stalls - yum!
Churchgate House is situated (unsurprisingly) on Churchgate, in the middle of Bolton. At one end of Churchgate is St Peter's Church (and gold postbox) and at the other the Market Cross/Monument. This is a pedestrianised conservation area.
St Peter's Church
"Good. They could do with doing something in these empty buildings"
(overheard whilst taking photos).
The exhibition space still needs a little bit of finessing for the Private View - but it looks really interesting already (big thanks to all involved). I overheard lots of positive and curious comments as people passed by whilst I was taking these pix.
More about New Art Spaces here and see below (via Twitter) where there should be further contact details should you need them. Note - there is no street parking at Churchgate House - there are car parking details and local info on the Bolton Council website
