Lots to see in Weston this Saturday


As well as it being the opening day for The Mythical Beast Sweet Shoppe (your shop keepers for the day will be Chipfork and Beth) there are a lot of other exciting things happening in Weston on Saturday 12th, some as part of Weston Arts Festival, some completely unrelated. Here's what's what:

Weston Arts Festival Arts Trail- Starting at Uphill Quarry and finishing at The Old Town Quarry.

Ian Shipton Open Studio at 42 Clevedon Rd (turn off the seafront directly opposite the old Tropicana) 10-6pm
Ian Shipton

Weston-super-Mare Paint Jam- various locations around town, but most excitingly at the Tropicana (seafront)

Art in the Quarry at Uphill, featuring site specific work, live music from Badgertrap, help for the love lorn from cantfindamatch.com, sweets from Tizzy Treatz, films projected on the rock face , information about the wildlife, walks and local history of Uphill and an Ice Cream van. You are encouraged to bring a picnic to share with us as we join in on some collaborative patchworking.



Frou Frou exhibition of contemporary embroidery from Joetta Maue, Karen Ruane, Lou Trigg and Cathy Cullis will be opening it's doors as well. Frou Frou is a lovely clothing boutique and the artwork fits in so perfectly there- I suggest you go and buy some art AND some clothes.

And friend of the Sweet Shoppe Becky has organised an event at her house for the evening called 'Don't Snore, just Draw' for more info you can contact her via a comment here.

I meant to visit the MB Sweet Shoppe on Saturday but ended up viewing only upstairs of Pier Head - I had no idea that there was another room downstairs, while the people working there were busy with other customers, so didn't get the chance to tell us.

Were you only open for that one day? It's a shame to have missed you - we're always looking for something a bit out of the ordinary to do in Weston.

How did it go?

Hi super Mum,
Sorry you never found us. But dont worry we're open saturday and sunday for the next four weekends. It went well this weekend, but the sweet shoppe loves visitors,so please come again. As you point out the pierview has an upstairs and a downstairs but the two aren't connected inside. theres some steps to the side of the building over looking the Birnbeck pier. or you can walk down the roadway leading to pier.
See you Later
