Last week’s Lunch and Art event, a Third Thursday Partnership event with Reading UK CIC was a huge success. A great atmosphere, a good mix of people, delicious food from picnic and beautiful art by Paul Kessling.
The pictures below by Salvo Toscano, will give you a taste of the story:

Thank you for everyone that came last week, for the first ever Third Thursday, it was a fab evening of music, art, food, good company and we raised monies for Launchpad. Please make sure you keep Thursday December 16th in your diary for the next event which is a literary/ story event of poetry, photography, stories and histories all served up with mulled wine, mince pies and more in Town Hall Square and Blandy & Blandys. … photos to follow
We followed up the Third Thursday by installing a new shop window on Friday 19th Nov at 27/28 Market Place, the work of Susan Clark and Jo Quinn, then creating lanterns with over 150 children (yes, we were amazed too until we counted how many glowsticks we had left!) on Saturday before we led a number of them through the streets, singing and ending up in St Mary’s churchyard. It really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
And whilst all this public activity is going on, Paul Kessling has been artist in residence up in jelly ArtPad, creating a series of new works. Here is a short time lapse film on how he creates them. Join us on Thursday 20 January (The Third Thursday) at lunchtime, bring along your lunch and enjoy a lunchtime talk and demonstration by Paul on how the works are created.
