Why Not, What If? A big success at St Sidwell’s

Why Not, What If? – an exploration of the whys and wherefores of ‘Don’t’, conceived by Veronica Gosling and ‘inspired’ by numerous officious signs and notices – played to a sell-out audience at St Sidwell’s Centre on March 22. There were performances from poets Susan Taylor, Simon Williams & Fiona Leishman, songwriter Peter Farrie and compere/comedian Jeff Sleeman. Work by Steven Bramble, James Turner, Laura Baudin, Tim Coles & Dylan Thomas (!) was also presented.

Thank you and your talented team for a fantastic evening.  We enjoyed every minute.

The team at St Sidwell’s, led by Dave Wright, were brilliant hosts and they made delicious food for the interval. A night to remember!

Budding Friends Needs Funding!

A Budding Friends group at Studio 36

Budding Friends is an Age UK Exeter initiative for people living with dementia, providing art workshops, facilitated here at Studio 36 by Veronica Gosling. The outstanding work produced by the participants has recently been on display at various venues including the RD&E hospital.

Sadly this valuable project has now lost funding. To help Budding Friends reach its £5000 fundraising target Cartridges Law are holding a fundraising exhibition on March 30th. For full details please visit this link on the Cartridges Law website.
