It’s hot tonight

Too hot for talkin’…I think I’m on Alice Cooper overload at the moment, but his songs fit so perfectly that I just can’t help myself.

I’ve had this crazy idea you see and because Russell is so lovely, instead of running for the hills, he has agreed. Will he ever learn? Russell runs a super duper art club on Saturday during term time (13:00-14:30, for just £8), as well as holidays sessions whenever school has kicked out. My cunning plan is this. On Saturday, Russell, along with some happy volunteers, shall become our artist in residence. Quite literally in residence, in our window. You can come and witness the madness/creativity, from 12:30 and then join Russell for an art class (not in the window).

There’s no need to book in for Russell during term time, but if you want to come along in the holidays, you will need to secure your place.
