DECK THE HALLS: A Christmas Collection by Various Artists

2014 has seen for the first time a consistent run of exhibitions at THE BIRDCAGE. The pub has two designated areas for art; the corridor known as The Bridge which changes monthly and the events space known as The Ballroom where the walls are the canvas.

Working directly with artists, either commissioning new work specific to the space or presenting existing work, our priority is to expand the public reach of emerging talent. Being at the very heart of the Norwich Lanes enables us to continuously provide opportunities for artists and collectives to be visible.

To conclude the year we invited all the artists who have exhibited at The Bridge & The Ballroom in 2014 to produce festive-themed pieces. In addition we have made them into a set of 12 Christmas cards! This is a unique collection of work from local and national artists, the packs cost £10 each and are available from the bar. All profits made from sales will be donated toThe Big C: Norfolk’s Cancer Charity via the fundraising of one courageous lady Oa Mackdonald. Like many others she is on a tough journey but despite that still has the strength to support others. A true inspiration. Read her story here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/caughtinaboobytrap
