The loop felt there was a real buzz in town last weekend and people were to be seen marching around with their Three Shires Festival programmes in hand. We nipped into see Stephanie Ramage and her gloriously varied textiles in the charming King Edward St Chapel. It was only on for the weekend but you can still see her work Upstairs at Sevens. We finally stormed the Town Hall and were delighted by the atmospheric and beautiful Journeys installation by Claire de Ruiter. Make a point of getting down to see it before it disappears next Sunday. Its really worth it. You'll also see the eclectic Spoons and friends arranged somewhat eccentrically around the bar!
The Loop is off to see Tony Benn at Gawsworth tonight. The sky's looking a bit iffy but were taking a picnic, and a bottle with our brollie. We'll report back.
If you get to the Merchants of Cool (see below) tell us what they are like.
