Last night being not only the first thursday of the month, but also the first day of the month, it seemed like the perfect time for Ben P, Christina the freelancer and I to head on over to shoreditch after work and soak up some culture.
FirstThursdays is a late night arts event – unsurprisingly, on the first thursday of each month – where galleries all over the east end stay open late and invite anyone and everyone to explore what there is to offer.
Now, being the creative people we are, the idea of a night soaking up inspiration, listening to music and exploring the side-streets of london was irresistible to us.
It wasn't the promise of free beer, honest.
One of the busiest venues — apart from the brilliant Boxpark — was the The New Curiosity Shop by Daniel Poole in the Londonewcastle Project Space. Bright neon-lights, buzzing atmosphere and great company made it the favourite venue of the night.
Enough rambling, it's friday so grab a beer, sit back, and look at some pictures.
Check it out, and maybe we'll see some of you there next month, drop us a line!
