So, as Thursday evening rolled around, I was very happy to push my Uni work to one side and head down to The Zetland bar in Huddersfield. With friends in tow, and Gola Creative Takeover flyers in hand we readied ourselves for a night of live art installations, great music and products by some of the areas best young entrepreneurs.
Needless to say the evening didn’t disappoint. The Rag and Bone collective provided fantastic entertainment, and the presence of tabletops that we could draw on went down a treat as we chatted, drank and listened to music. Everyone seemed to find his or her inner illustrator! Joining the lads there was a great stall by West Yorkshire Cameras, and as always they were nice enough to give me some much needed camera advice (I’m such a beginner!) As well as this there were heaps of other musicians and stalls, turning the Zetland into a creative feast, with everything from original artwork to vintage clothing.
It’s amazing to see so many creative’s coming together, and it really opens your eyes as to how much talent can be hiding in your local area. Why not take some time to discover what your town has to offer?
