The hares are finally here! GoGo2018 is definitely GoGo and judging by the reaction of the people of Norwich its already a big hit. A big thank you to all involved and that includes all the visitors that stopped to chat as we delivered the hares to their new homes. Thank you.
I couldn't resist this snap of the wonderful Kings Place building, home to some the most amazing world music, spoken voice, podcasts and this weekend the politics festival. Two amazing concert halls below ground level and probably one of London's best kept secrets. A big shout out to everyone who works there and for the amazing work that they do. It's award winning, did I mention that? On this day, it was a wonderful balmy night at King's cross, music played from "Word on the water" and everytihng felt as one. I'm very lucky to work there.
Gorgeous people, gorgeous outfits and hares... Lots of hares. :) I was lucky enough to work as Event technician, Event Photographer and hare support at this launch of the GoGoHares trail. Generously hosted by the Riverside team and supported by those nice people at ETS Wymondham at the amazing Peter Beck. The event was a great success. Don't forget to watch and enjoy the Hoppy video that was launched today :)
It was an honour and a privilege to work with the Starman Experience. A very professional band, great sound and a great performance. The whole band work so well together and they played so many great Bowie songs. Definitely worth seeing, and then see them again! A wonderful night. I love my job.
P.A. installation and photography and this time for Break Children's Charity at their GoGoCreate Launch. We were at Pensthorpe Natural park on a glorious sunny day, Leverets painted by Norfolk schools and empassioned speeches from the Break team and Peter Marron. A very uplifting day, a great event.
Loved the sentiment of this banner at the Kings place Music foundation. It was up ready for a conference and loved the drive and determination of these people. I met with Dr. Helen Pankhurst, inspirational speaker and she was not alone. Good work everyone.
It's been a busy week as the GoGoHares prepare to hit the streets of Norwich. I've been "living" down at the top secret hideaway where Break Charity have been hiding the completed Hares ready for the Sculpture Trail.
My Job is to Photograph all of the Leverets (Baby Hares) ready for the Sticker book being produced by the EDP I bumped into Emma and Denise yesterday morning... While the interviews were being recorded, newly painted Leverets were being delivered and each one carefully photographed and then later "cutout" ready for inclusion in the sticker book (to be released later this year). Each leveret comes with a story, they are being created by schools, clubs and organisations, and I love to hear how each one is created. I can't wait for you to see them later this year! What a great project to be involved in.
A random internet search back in January led me to The south appearing at the Waterfront in Norwich. A further search confirmed that they were the remnants of the "Beautiful South" from waaaay back. I booked and with expectation running high I went along to see the nine piece band. It was an amazing night. Although they have lost the "Beautiful" from their name they were beautiful in their appearance and perfomance, I sang until my voice was hoarse and loved every moment. Well done and I will be back.
Tonight saw me at my first Hostry Festival Production meeting for 2018! September is approaching fast and plans are well underway for this years festival. Keep your eyes peeled for more details... The talented Simon Brown and our own "national treasure" Helen Mc Dermott were muted to be teaming up for a Jazz evening! You heard it here first. :)
