What I’m up to in February…

26 Jan

After a hectic January, I’ve got loads of things I’m looking forward to in February & I thought I’d share them with you all & perhaps see you at some of them.

Free drink Thursdays!

I’m always up for a free drink (let’s face it who isn’t?!) & therefore I’ll be at Exeter Phoenix riding the complementary drinks wave, starting with Phoenix Gallery’s private view of David Blandy (always good to mix art with wine) followed by a free shot of premium vodka to drink whilst watching docu-film, How To Re-Establish A Vodka Empire on Thu 2. It’s all about film-maker Dan Edelsy discovering the mysterious tale and heritage of his vodka empire family.

Playing with snails, not literally, all in the name of theatre you see…

Best thing about living in a small city (and possibly being it’s most prolific art blogger) is getting opening night tickets for shows. The anticipation, the packed theatre full of journos with poised pens, and me; there for the enjoyment of seeing a new show. Playing With Snails at Bike Shed Theatre on Wed 8 is a play that deals with some pretty heavy emotions (redemption, guilt etc) told by children who play on an island at an old fort.

Popping to #pop_up

It’s lovely to see so many familiar faces at pop_up (mingling for creatives and geeks), it’s been going for over a year now & it’s great that there’s such a loyal following in Totnes, Exeter & Taunton. I’ll be at Exeter pop_up on Thu 9 Feb at 6:30 in Oddfellows. Happily it’s hosted in the cocktail bar! New faces are always made most welcome, so if you haven’t been join the facebook group / hash tag on twitter.

Social bees Redfront share their secrets at posh Southernhay House

As you may know I work in marketing & I love all things social, so imagine my delight at the opportunity to spend a day at Southernhay House with Phillippa Rose & Simon Gough at ‘Integrated Social’ part of the business intensive Social Series. I’m expecting absolute gems of wisdom to take away from Redfront Marketing. And as friends of mine, Simon & Phillippa have offered readers of my blog a fantastic discount on their Social Series… Each of the three days costs £145, get 50% cashbash. PLUS enter this promotional code ‘CLAIRENETWORK’ & you get 20% discount! So all in all the ticket’ll only cost you £59. There’s not long left to get tickets, so get your skates on & book you place now.

Promise my life doesn’t revolve around alcohol, but…

I’m SO EXCITED that Bryony Kimmings is returning to Exeter (after seeing her last show – Sex Idiot, see my review) with another adventure. This time she performs her interpretation of a week spent inebriated in the aptly titled ‘7 Day Drunk’. She’s at Exeter Phoenix on Tue 21 Feb.

C’est chic, c’est moi!

I’m off to Paris at the end of the month & I’ve always ALWAYS wanted to go to a Parisian flea market (they just look so much better than English ones!)… so I shall be heading to Porte De Vanves (unless anyone has any other suggestions??) to search out some bargains and have new art for my walls.
