Forging ahead with the Ballarat Studios

‘Even if you are on the right track, if you stay in one place you will still be run over’

This is why momentum is all important at this stage and since we hit the ground running this week we have generated an awful lot of that!

Our first, major difference is that the Ballarat is a pub no longer. 1 day, 5 guys and a really REALLY big sledgehammer put paid to that and now what i have are the beginnings of our theatre and performance space. Now all we have to do is to get the room cleared of bits of bar and we will have the makings of a tremendous space for our new residents, Alphabetti Spaghetti, to use.
Alphabetti Spaghetti, headed up by Northumbria Grad Fellow Ali Prichard, are an exciting up and coming theatre group who’s reputation in Newcastle is growing. We are thrilled to have them on board, and hope to be up and running with them soon!
Check out their website, at http://www.alphabettispaghettitheatre.co.uk for all of the goss and info you need on what is set to be a very promising partnership!

We have the creative talents of Tynemouth Collectables on board, and the lovely Anna Thompson, they will be looking at our options for workshops and tutorials, and a craft fair collective coming up, bringing exciting things to the workplaces of North Tyneside so do keep your eyes open for updates on that.

Also taking its first tentative steps is our ‘sponsor a chair’ initiative which we will be targeting local business and taking their furniture.
Well, not that literally, but i thought it would be nice to include the local area in the project and to give them a chance to advertise within the building for the measly cost of £5.00 OR the donation of a chair to use at the venue. Each chair will have advertising details of the company on it, and exposure inside the building. By giving local businesses first dibs we can outwardly show our commitment to the North Shields area and hope to funnel some supporting trade their way once the venue is up and running.

We have come a long way in a few, short days and will be pushing ahead further in the coming weeks. we’re sooooo close… i can almost TASTE it…..

The Ballarat Studios will soon be launching its own, independent website and details of that will be coming up shortly.

Phew! Its all go here at the moment… and a cracking start to the new year!
