It was really good fun, and I’d definitely go again.  Both the Rugby Boy and I commented on how relaxed we were for a Friday night – it was really easy to relax and chill, and to be honest by the end we weren’t too fussed by the end results, it was just a great night!... A really fun, relaxing, different evening at the end of a busy week. Definitely a date night to remember!

Thank you to everyone at PopUp Painting for organising a painting session for my hen party. The team went out of their way in securing a new venue close to our other activities (which was perfect - very central and with lots of light), organising drinks, and making a special themed playlist. There were a range of artistic talents amongst us, but everyone got stuck in with clear step-by-step instructions from the artist. We all loved it!

Pop Up Painting was the perfect team building activity. Drinks, music and food both aided and distracted the 'artists' from the masterpieces they were creating. Phyllissa and team were very helpful and great fun. A thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all and we're already discussing our next painting event! Have already recommended to anyone and everyone.

I had such a great time at my first pop up painting event that I had to book another one straight after!  A relaxed environment with a friendly mix of people just painting and chatting. This is for any one at any age with any experience of painting.  The lovely art facilitators help you step by step and a cheeky glass of Prosseco really helps the paint process too!’
