One Door opens...16th - 21st July

An interactive exhibition of objects and images that widely explored the concept of openings and all that it entails. The main body of work was by the Access to Arts workshop group from Double Impact, (an aftercare service for adults recovering from substance misuse) with contributions from their partner organisations City Arts and Framework. The exhibition was met with a warm response from visitors, and the door for comments was filled with positivity! We look forward to welcoming the next exhibition of work from the workshop group in the future...

Red Shoes exhibition 24th -30th June

Red Shoes Memories Ltd are a company based in Nottingham who specialise in Ladies Fashion Accessories and have started their collection in 2007 with 3 beautifully hand made leather handbags. They are sophisticated handbags with a twist. Customers can have their own photographs, pictures or even love letters printed on the inside of the handbag letting each sophisticated lady ‘walk with their memories’.

Red Shoes held this exhibition of their history and beautiful handbags at the View from the Top Gallery from the 24th – 30th of June. There were red shoes a plenty leading up to the gallery and lots of beautiful bit’s and bob’s. The opening night went with a bang because of their generous prize draw & drinks courtesy of the Dragon pub!

The exhibition also showcased all the Firfield Primary School’s entries to their ‘Red Shoes Girl’ competition which was judged by the local Mayor. It really sparked the imagination of the school children which was evident from the variety of entries!
