We realise that we couldn’t have done this without the support of the wonderful artists who have participated, the arts organisations who have been kind enough to give us a home and the magnificent viewers, who made every exhibition worthwhile. So to celebrate you and your greatness, for our 1st Birthday, we will be hosting a TREAT YO SELF evening. A feast for the eyes, stomach and soul, TREAT YO SELF will be all about you, only you. Your pleasure, your enjoyment, your satisfaction. Inhibitions to be left at the door, we will be asking artists to create the ultimate luxury and hedonistic interactive artworks. Pieces designed with your pleasure and indulgence in mind. We want to treat you like the Prince/Princess that you are.’ From 10pm the gallery will transform to host Lindsey Mendick’s Karaoke extravaganza with DJ’s GALORE. This event will be ticketed at the price of £5, which includes all treatments, food and entertainment. All the ticket money generated from this event will go towards the event costs.
