During the Summer Half Term 2016 we hosted an Alley week in the alley between Stamford Street and Albion Street where THE BACK gALLErY is located. A different activity was facilitaed each afternoon finishing with a celebration art exhibition on Saturday.

It was a great success with lots of neighbours both young and old coming out to join in the activities. The children made new friends, had lots of fun enjoying the alley as a play space and decorating some newly blackboard painted back gates with chalk drawings.

Here are some highlights:

Day 1. Cleaning, chalking and cake!
Day 2- Wheely day!
Day 3- large scale Art.
Day 4- Planting Sunflowers!
Day 5- Beach day! ending with a huge waterfight!!
day 6- Celebration Art Exhibition.


Thank you to St John’s Sunshine for funding this event.
