Thanks to all the Burton creatives who supported us by buying calendars at this week's meeting of Outline - a free networking group for those working or volunteering in the creative industries in and around East Staffordshire.
Guest speaker at the meeting was Alistair Kennedy of the Burton Creative Network - who is masterminding the PINT Contemporary Arts Festival which takes place in Burton Upon Trent during October and November.
Performers will include Sinai Theatre - a new company featuring our own 'Miss April', Hannah Mason.
We are hugely grateful to Alistair for offering us the chance to boost the funds we raise for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research by selling our calendars at a Craft Fair and Artisan Market being held as part of the Pint Arts Festival in the pedestrianised part of Station Street on Saturday November 10.
Also at the Outline meeting was Anna Roebuck, who runs The Making House in Winshill - a gem of a place that is still a well-kept secret to many townspeople. The Making House, at 50 Bearwood Hill Road, hosts regular arts and crafts workshops and exhibitions and has a wonderful gift shop selling unusual and beautiful cards and gifts. Anna also runs Bags 2 Riches, a business making Fair Trade jewellery, lights and artwork created from recycled plastic bags. We are delighted that Anna has offered to stock our calendars in her gift shop which is open from 10am to 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
We will continue to update the page on this blog that lists all the places where you can buy a calendar.
