Surprise visitors in the valley.

Creative Ouseburn @36 Lime Street brought some surprise visitors to the Valley. Visiting next door neighbours Seven Stories Gordon Brown and family were spotted early on going into the Centre for Childrens book and emerged some hours later (after a torrential down pour), happy to pose for a quick photo, but no time to come into the gallery and write on the wall!

Visitor numbers this Sunday were higher than expected (over 50) considering the appalling weather, but once in the gallery visitors were happy to spend time and chat to the artists making work and providing have a go activities.  Its Play Time  bus provided welcome and dry reprieve for parents and guardians escaping the down pours.
