Thanks to the lovely people at Sculpture Village UK, I’ll be showing some pieces during Towersey Festival this August bank holiday weekend.
Towersey is an amazing folk-centred festival held every year in Towersey Village, Oxfordshire, and I have been there for the last three years as part of the litter and recycling team, otherwise known as the Towersey Wombles. We litterpick the showground and surrounding areas at least three times each day, empty all the bins throughout the festival, make sure as much stuff as possible gets recycled, and at the end, we litter-pick the entire site (campsites included!) to make sure it’s left as empty and clean as we found it.
Festival plug over, I can draw your attention to Sculpture Village, who have been resident at Towersey for the past 7 years as a pop-up gallery and sculpture workshop centre, and are the heart of the visual arts at Towersey. Last year the Wombles were commissioned to create a sculpture out of the rubbish we found during the festival. This year we’ll hopefully be doing the same, so look out for that.. In addition to that, I’ll be showing some work at Sculpture Village which I’m super excited about.
One more thing!! I know many of you are of the creative persuasion, so if you’re interested in getting involved with Sculpture Village in any way, they’d love you to get in touch. Message them via Facebook. Links below!

I also have some other news which I will elaborate on in due course, to do with a pop-up shop exhibition I will be taking part in here in Leeds very soon. Watch this space!!
