Unleash your creativity, drink wine, and help fundraise for Help For Heroes!
The coming week sees poppy season get into full swing, both nationally and in terms of our events calendar. At our poppies events, £5 of every ticket sale is donated to Help For Heroes. 2015 will be the second year we’ve ran this fundraising campaign. In 2014 we managed to raise a total of £200. We were a much smaller company back then – so hopefully this year we’ll be able to at least double that!
On 27th October we were at The Dog & Fox, Wimbledon, for the first of our poppy events. The event was themed around Van Gogh’s ‘Vase with Daisies and Poppies’ – just one of our poppy repertoire (see below for our other Poppies paintings!). You can see all the photos from that event here.
In November we have 12 poppy events planned. These aren’t just London Poppies events. We’ll be running them all the way from St. Albans in Hertfordshire to Bromley and Cobham, as well as from Richmond to the City of London! Make sure you book your place at one of these events here.
PopUp Painting has a simple aim: to bring art out of the classroom and the gallery and into the places where people meet on an everyday basis. Bringing social painting to London, we pop up in bars and restaurants right across London, Surrey and St. Albans. With public events, corporate events and private parties, and with themes from Banksy to Van Gogh, our events require no experience and give people a chance to have fun unleashing their creativity. Wine glass in one hand, paint brush in the other. Our painting and wine nights are one of the most creative things to do in London!
